Israelis and Palestinians protesting bombing of Aleppo: “Yalla irhal ya Bashar!”

Israelis and Palestinians joined together tonight in front of the Russian embassy in Tel Aviv to protest the bombing of besieged Aleppo, organized by the Israeli Committee for Humanitarian Aid to the Syrian People.

Several Jews and Palestinians showed up and speeches were held in Arabic, Hebrew, and in Russian by the Russian Jews who held signs with Putin’s face, saying “Syrian Murder”.

“The world was silent when Hitler bombed Guernica in 1937. The silence gave Hitler the cue needed to initiate World War ll, in which at least 50 million were killed. Aleppo tests the ability of democratic leaders to end atrocity. If the lesson of Guernica is not applied, the fall of Aleppo will be a fall for humanity as a whole, a prologue to future wars.”

Video article that I co-produced on the protest (in Hebrew):

די להפצצות רוסיות בסוריה

עשרות הפגינו מול השגרירות הרוסית (25/10/2016) במחאה על ההפצות הרוסיות על העיר חאלב ועל ההתגייסות של השלטונות ברוסיה למען משטרו של בשאר אל אסד.
מיכל שוורץ מהועד לסולידריות עם העם הסורי: “בואו לא נשתוק, בואו לא נגיד ‘אהה זה האויבים, זה הסורים, זה ערבים, מה אכפת לנו’. זה ילדים, זה בני אדם כמונו – כמוכם, הם מסתכלים על מה שאנחנו עושים, הם מאוד זקוקים לכל תמיכה. אני חושבת שיהודים היו זקוקים לתמיכה במלחמת העולם, לא קיבלו מספיק, והיום צריכים ללמוד את הלקח ולתת את התמיכה למי שצריך”.

Got a sec?

Firstly, thanks for reading this article!

The Turban Times is a completely independent magazine, run by bloggers and journalists who believe strongly in the importance of the stories that we publish.

If our readers chipped in occasionally, with what they can afford, we would be able to continue telling important stories from the Middle East and North Africa region – and you would ultimately keep us financially and editorially independent.
