Pitzi and Nurit, shalom,
The work you’re doing is sacred, humane and moral. It cleanses us, removes from the Israeli public the taint of silence, denial and escapism.
The tour was fascinating. I consider myself one who knows what’s going on, involved in the issue: I was an active participant in the Paris talks after the Oslo agreement as the coordinator of the Israeli delegation to the negotiations.
I read B’Tselem’s reports and the newspaper accounts by Amira Hass and Gid’on Levy. But there’s no substitute for seeing and hearing at firsthand.
By showing us the awful sights, the dreadful sounds, the tremendous despair through which we drove you made this trip meaningful and significant, and you deserve the greatest respect for doing so. I keep telling friends and acquaintances about the tour. I hope some of them will take it also.
All my best, and thank you,
