Dr. Ruchama Marton

Dr. Ruchama Marton is a psychotherapist, psychiatrist, and the founder of Physicians for Human Rights-Israel. Marton is an unequivocal supporter of human rights. The violence she witnessed during her military service in Israel sparked her anti-militarist advocacy for human rights. In this Mondoweiss article, she writes: “Without political rights to all, as we can see in Israel/Palestine, the road is clear to accepting any atrocity: murder; assassinations; mass expulsions; unfettered destruction of houses and entire settlements; collective punishments; lethal withholding of food, water, and medical attention; movement restriction; and killing of unarmed civilian demonstrators.
