Well!  This is the kind of thing I’ve been waiting to see on Truthdig for a couple years!  Where’s the end of the video, I don’t know, but it seems cut off.

Anyway, this kind of nonviolent resistence among Palestinians and Israelis has been going on for years and almost nobody knows about it because it is carefully kept out of the “news.”  I don’t know how many people from both “sides” are consistntly and committedly involved, but one organization that has done a lot is Christian Peace Teams.  Another is the Israeli publication “The Other Israel” and another, Gush Shalom.  Look them up and find the better way to end the conflict and defeat Israel’s brutal occupation.  Please.
