"End the occupation !" PAJU Vigil # 862, August 18, 2017: Israel’s newest tourist attraction: family fantasy camps teach how to kill (coming soon to the US)

by Kathryn Shihadah

“Come visit Israel, where you can stop by the Western Wall, tour the Holocaust Museum, view the Dead Sea Scrolls, and shoot live bullets at cardboard cutouts of Palestinian terrorists!” Israel is becoming a destination for a whole new experience: it’s called military tourism, and there are half a dozen companies that run these popular fantasy camps—some on settlements in the occupied West Bank, others in Israel. They are also running these camps in the U.S (See video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1MJVz1fdEAo&feature=youtu.be)

"End the occupation !" PAJU Vigil # 861, August 11, 2017: Fundamentalists in Israel are shunning open-minded Jews from the rest of the world

I was 19, and I had allowed myself to be “kidnapped” at the Western Wall in Jerusalem. It was a well-known thing to do at the time: If you were an American kid exploring your Judaism and you wanted to get an invite to an ultra-Orthodox home for a Sabbath meal, you simply hung around the Western Wall on a Saturday afternoon until an Orthodox man well-known for his outreach approached and asked if you wanted to join a family for lunch. Like so many young American Jews who grew up in largely secular homes, I was in Israel to delve into my Jewish identity.

"End the occupation !" PAJU Vigil # 860, August 4, 2017:

The major general’s speech, delivered at the national Holocaust Remembrance Day ceremony in 2016, sparked a flurry of denouncements, as well as statements of support, from Israeli politicians and public figures.
