I call on the ISM to get your act in gear and send your activists to Yarmouk. The “Palestinians” of Yarmouk need you as human shields to protect them from ISIS and Assad’s troops.
This is your opportunity to prove to the world that you are more than just antisemites and Israel haters, and are truly concerned about the welfare of “Palestinians”.
Among the most basic activist program I expect to see from you other studnt “Pro-Palestinian” groups is a mass US Campus sit-in and protest for Yarmouk. Perhaps even a Yarmouk Week. You can lie on the floor and pretend your throats were cut.
I am eagerly awaiting the announcement of the Yarmouk Aid Flotilla, which will bravely break the siege in and around the neighborhood, to provide the Yarmouk “Palestinians” with much needed bags of long-expired medicines and empty boxes.
I will be putting up a sign-up sheet for all the Leftwing activists to volunteer to go and walk the Yarmouk children to and from school every day.
And when that list is filled up, I will put up another volunteer list for planting and harvesting olive trees.
I call on all the rabbis concerned about human rights to travel to Syria and personally guide foreign journalists around the neighborhood so they can meet the desperate families and hear stories about the horrible conditions they are in.
And those women from the checkpoint watch groups must visit every ISIS checkpoint to make sure the “Palestinians” have free passage and are not degraded.
And not to mention, they need to directly confront the ISIS soldiers and rebuke them in person. Bring your cameras.
And I expect Adalah and other NGOs to be supply the much needed personal testimonials about ISIS war crimes to the UN investigation teams.
And for all those “pro-Palestinian” activists groups that have been astonishingly silent on Yarmouk these past two years, I remind you to immediately post a statement of concern on your website now that Yarmouk’s “Palestinians” are in the headlines, only so you don’t look like complete hypocrites.
I’m glad to see that you are at least doing that last item on my list.JoeSettler
