“The IDF Memorial Day is a pornographic circus of glorifying grief and silencing voices.”
“Israel is committing Humanity’s worst atrocities... Israel is proving its devotion to Nazi values... Israel exploits the Holocaust to reap international benefits.”
“In the name of the State of Judaism, we have stolen lands, murdered, starved others and made them thirsty, betrayed, and lied to ourselves and the whole world.”‘Jewish Sh*t List’, she has also said this:
“Israel has invented anti-Semitism in order to escape responsibility for its crimes.”As a result of speaking out thus, Ms Sagie, data coordination director of the Israeli human rights organisation B’Tselem at the time, lost her job.
Fair play to an honest Israeli lady.
In the same issue of Commentary, Polak quotes Jessica Montell, the executive director of B’Tselem, thus:
“In some cases, the situation in the West Bank is worse than apartheid in South Africa...Not just us who tell it how it is, now is it?
The current reality is affecting Palestinian human rights in every sphere... certainly if we talk about restrictions on freedom of movement...
Not everything is justified in the name of security… the whole idea of security has to be examined, what we mean by it, what’s justified, what ultimately is going to achieve our security, all those questions that are swept under the carpet in Israeli society...
It’s the legacy of Jewish history that our own security concerns are manipulated to act as some sort of blank check for all Israeli government policies…
During parts of this intifada, the Palestinian police, or anyone wearing a uniform, were automatically targeted by Israel.” (2003)
