Amazing video of Huwaida Arraf facing off IDF soldiers
The following link is of Huwaida Arraf, a co-founder and central figure in the International Solidarity Movement and, recently, the Free Gaza Movement (the folks organizing the boat trips from Cyprus to Gaza) in action literally in the face of IDF soldiers trying to block them from shooting Palestinian children using only words. She is the delegation leader of the current FGM Ship of Humanity boat trip.
Korean camera crew in Gaza documented this heroic action. In the spirit of Rachel Corrie, who gave her life to defend a Palestinian home. Unlike the iconic image of the Chinese man standing in front of the tanks come to crush the Tiananmen protests in Beijing, 1989 and images splashed all over the world’s media, you are unlikely to see this video or its images in the U.S. media. It is also a video of some hope. Her courageous action seems, at least, momentarily successful.
