How a home is demolished south of Hebron, and how to write a letter to the editor
From an important Israeli partner for peace, Breaking the Silence, this video of a soldier describing the banality of house demolitions in the South Hebron hills. View it here: http://www.breakingthesilence.org.il/testimonies/videos/67601
The tagline for Breaking the Silence is "Israeli Soldiers talk about the occupied territories." Breaking the Silence is an organization of veteran combatants who have served in the Israeli military since the start of the Second Intifada and have taken it upon themselves to expose the Israeli public to the reality of everyday life in the Occupied Territories.
Write a letter to the editor
The coordinator in Maine for Churches for Middle East Peace wrote a letter to the editor and it was accepted. Read it here.
If you have something to share why not write a letter to your local paper. Helpful "how to" information at http://www.cmep.org/content/letters-editor-cmep-guide.
