Military Invasions of Palestinian Homes

January 28 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Many of us have spent more time at home this past year than most. While that has required adjustment, it also has made me think about the meaning of home. For me, home is a place of safety. When my front door is closed, it feels like much of the world’s chaos is held at bay. I so wish this was true for everyone.

But when night falls in the West Bank, Palestinians living under occupation are vulnerable to arbitrary invasion of their homes by Israeli security forces.

Please join me for an interactive virtual program on Thursday, January 28 at 1pm Eastern / 10am Pacific as we examine the practice of home invasions and the severe harm it causes to the Palestinian families whom it impacts and on the Israelis who carry it out.

 

 

A new report by three premier Israeli human rights organizations and NIF grantees, A Life Exposed: Military Invasions of Palestinian Homes in the West Bank, documents the pervasive practice of home invasions by Israeli security forces and the impact of this practice on Palestinians, Israelis and society in general. These groups and other allies in the field have put this issue on the public agenda in Israel both because of its severity and because it provides a lens through which we can understand the present-day realities of the occupation. We are looking forward to continuing that discussion on this side of the ocean.

Join me on Thursday, January 28 on Zoom. Sign up here to receive the link.
