Video: Nobel Peace Prize Winner shot by Israeli army
Mairead Corrigan McGuire received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1976 for her heroic work in Northern Ireland, where peace after terror became a reality. She recently spoke in the West Bank. Here’s an excerpt from her speech (read it all here.):
“From where do I get my hope? From the people of this place, and those Israeli/Palestinian peace activists who believe passionately that given justice and equality for all its citizens, peace and human security is possible in this holy land.“
She’s participating in a non-violent protest after speaking when soldiers of the Israeli army open fire. McGuire is felled by a rubber-coated steel bullet. Undeterred, she presses the case for human rights under a tree while waiting for the ambulance to arrive. (More of the story here.)
May we be so brave.
