To continue my theme of "speaking through the voice of others", I just discovered this on YouTUBE (gotta love it!) Here are a couple of Israeli Defense Forces soldiers Avichai Sharon and Noam Chayut, speaking out about their experiences "serving their country". After you watch this you may understand why I and other Palestinians, refer to the soldiers as Israeli Offense Forces (IOF). On an aside I was intrigued how much these two guys actually looked like me, I mean in a physical sense, skin colour, hair, etc. I mean we could be cousins...and in a sense we are...
Pay close attention when Noam talks about coming away from a rather extreme operation and then hearing on the radio news how it was being down played to the Israeli public. I think if Israelis truly understood what they were doing (and have done) to the Palestinian people they would be appalled!
The truth is there...now YOU have the choice to speak out.
Watch this and feel what the Palestinian frustration is...then visit the Breaking the Silence website.
