A talk by Diana Neslen, entitled 'Human rights: A Jewish perspective on Israel'. Diana is a member of Jews for Justice for Palestinians. The talk was organised by the Oxford Palestine Solidarity Campaign.
"Today the gross inequality and racism in Israel leaves people schooled in anti-racism and multiculturalism uncomfortable and visits to the Occupied Territories often have the effect of solidifying what had previously been doubt into a sense of major antagonism"
"Most of us dissident Jews feel existential pain on seeing how Israel treats those over whom it has dominium. Our concerns are enhanced by the knowledge that far from singling out Israel for attack, the leaders of the Western world make every effort to genuflect to her and to follow her lead... [W]e feel even more passionately that it is up to us to challenge the craven behaviour of the powers that be."
