Join us for an inside look at what is happening in the West Bank and Gaza —
Webinar at 5 pm PT, Wednesday, August 4, 2021
The ugly truth of what is happening to Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza has been effectively hidden by media silence. Israelis don’t want to look, and the West doesn’t know. The Israeli Defense Force (IDF) and police protect and reinforce attacks by “settlers” which are increasingly vicious and frequent. Israeli courts, police, and settlers have worked with the IDF and Civil Administration for de facto annexation of most of the West Bank. What is happening to Palestinians exemplifies colonialism throughout the world.
