Richard Gere on segregation in Hebron: It’s exactly like the Old South

by on September 29, 2017

Richard Gere has seen as so many people have that Hebron, and the West Bank in general, is just like the Old South used to be.  In Hebron “Palestinians are forbidden to walk on Shuhada Street. Their shop doors have been welded shut. The army has bricked up and sealed the fronts of Palestinian houses that face the streets through which settlers pass on their way to synagogue.”

On this day of Yom Kippur and all other days we must atone for the wrongs done to Palestinians, the wrongs done to Israelis, the wrongs done to all others, and we must travail for tikkun olam (healing for the whole world) and for a implementation of justice for all.
