Middle East Justice and Peace group to show film on Israeli apartheid

Have you ever wondered what the word “apartheid” actually means for people living in such a situation? The Middle East Justice and Peace Group of South Central Pennsylvania, associated with the Adams Unity Coalition, will sponsor a community event on Thursday, September 29 at 7:00 p.m.

A short film, “Inside Israeli Apartheid” will be shown, followed by discussion, in the Valentine Hall auditorium at the Lutheran Seminary in Gettysburg.

As Americans have learned more about the ways in which Israel controls every waking moment of life in Occupied Palestine, citizens have come to understand that the situation strongly resembles the control which South Africa exerted over its non-white citizens.  It is important for American taxpayers and voters to understand the details of Israeli control and how it affects the lives of Palestinian families on a day-to-day basis.

Discussion and refreshments following the film will take place in the Valentine coffee shop and will focus on issues of apartheid.

  • I wish I was able to attend. This is a subject that needs our attention precisely because it is American taxpayer dollars ($4.8 billion per year) that supports this permanent subjugation of one people over another. Our American indifference must be replaced by outrage.
