Last Day Of Delegation
Today is the last day of our delegation's travels. Several of us met yesterday at Jeff Halper's home to discuss furthering the partnership between AJJP and ICAHD. We talked about joint education efforts, coordinated campaigns and joint delegation planning. Our delegation has been a great success in terms of connecting with our friends in the West Bank, Gaza and inside the Green Line. On this trip, more of our members learned about the complicated legal, social and economic discrimination against Palestinian citizens of Israel. After our visit to the large Arab city of Umm Al Fahm, we read a story about the Israeli Supreme Court's decision to allow a march of ultra rightists through the city. THis is a provocative and hostile act intended only to provoke Palestinian citizens.
