YOU! there's a movement with hundreds of thousands people just like you across the world including Palestinians and Israelis protesting educating divesting and boycotting all to bring non violent international pressure on Israel to stop violating human rights of Palestinian throughout history our government failed to push for justice people just like you, like us have taken the lead and won now its the Palestinean turn for freedom and justice we can pressure Israel to END the occupation and the discrimination we want all want people, Jews and Palestinean to have quality human right and democracy (well thats not necessary) we can change history!!!!
