Young woman blocks Israeli soldier’s rifle shots

with 2 comments

Astonishing courage!  A young woman pulls down the muzzle of the rifle of an Israeli soldier, insisting, “You’re shooting at kids, don’t you understand that? Just pull back!

Inspiring 2.5 minute video from Korean television, followed by comments of Prof. Juan Cole:

clipped from www.juancole.com

Korean television has video of a Palestinian girl confronting Israeli soldiers over their firing (rubber bullets?) at demonstrating Palestinian children and youth.

She is being identified by my facebook friends as Huwaida Arraf, a Detroiter married to Adam Shapiro, a University of Michigan Poli Sci graduate, and a founder of International Solidarity Movement, a nonviolent activist organization.

Were we all so brave, life on earth would be different.
