A different kind of SSS – Settlers, Shministim and SelfHaters

S – “These silly settlers. Some settlers are quiet and others are violent. Some speak with us while others try to attack us. The small illegal outpost of Asa’el has some of the most violent and crazy people that I have ever encountered. One settler from Asa’el has always struck me as strangely insane. Her name is Marva and I believe that she hails from South Africa. Below are two videos exploring her thoughts on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.”

SS – What are people saying about the Why We Refuse  (Shimistim) tour? – Here is what the press is saying about the tour: “An elderly women in the audience who identified herself to the speakers as a Holocaust survivor thanked Wind and Mishly for their presentation, saying, if other young people use the way you do, we would live in a much better world.” – The Brandeis Hoot

“Maya, she’s infectious.  I think she’s genuine in terms of her desire to see her own country well.  I think if Israel is well, I think Palestinians will also be well, I think America will be well,’ said Michael Bitar, a Palestinian-American who attended the talk.” -The Indypendent Read more…

SSS – “Ezra Nawi has been sentenced to 30 days in prison and a fine of 750 NIS after a long court battle stemming from the accusation that he assaulted two border officers. Ezra is a close friend and his story has been documented on this website extensively. In response to his verdict, Ezra argued that “the court has been permitting the occupation. The punishment doesn’t scare me, and neither does the judge.” The most important and difficult aspect of the sentence is that the judge also sentenced him to 6 months in prison if he violates law in the occupied territories in the next 3 years. This is worst than the 30-days he got, as most of Ezra’s work in the occupied territories is about protest and nonviolently opposing the occupation, which in many cases translates to violation of law according to the Israeli legal system. None of the media outlets are reporting this important detail.”
