Rabbi David Mivasair: “Justice you shall pursue”
On May 29th Jewish Liberation Theology Institute (JeLiThIn) in partnership with Canadian for Justice and Peace in the Middle East (CJPME) invited Rabbi David Mivasair to report back on his trip to Palestine.
Before the talk, Rabbi Mivasair discussed the Israeli land grab on the Taylor Report -- Description (18 minutes): Palestinian villagers have been driven from their homes under dubious pretexts by Israel’s military and government. Now a combination of Jewish and Palestinian activists have begun to wage a non-violent campaign to win back the villages.
In October 2014 our team went with Eitan Bronstein Aparicio from Zochrot to Giv'at 'Amal in Tel Aviv/Jaffa, a former Palestinian village called Jammasin al-Gharbi. Right after the Palestinians from Jammasin al-Gharbi were expelled, Jewish immigrants from Arab countries repopulated the village. In this video we hear from the last descendants of those Jews who have now also been forcibly removed. Filming and editing: Eitan Bronstein Aparicio, Zochrot, October 2014 (9:57 minutes).
