Sunday: Solidarity protest with threatened Israeli Bedouin village Umm al Hiran

3 Comments 28 January 2016

The Bedouin residents of Um Al-Hiran have asked that we join them and leaders of the Israeli Arab Community in an afternoon of solidarity and protest.  Earlier this month, the Israeli High Court refused to rehear Um Al-Hiran and Atir’s petition against plans to expell the villagers from the lands the government moved them to in 1956. In August, JNF bulldozers began preparing the first stage of transforming Bedouin Um Al Hiran into Jewish Hiran.

Korah reminds all of us who question the world around us that we must always do so for the sake of heaven, and never for the sake of power.
