A truly Jewish voice

Writing in The IndependentVictoria Gagliardo-Silver describes her impressions of Israel from a young, black, Jewish American perspective. 

In one night, after reading about the exploitation of Palestinian resources by the Israeli government, how Israeli forces slaughtered children in a protest for Palestinian rights, and the closure of the Gaza Strip she became a pro-Palestinian Jew.

She now believes that both Jews and Palestinian people have the right to live safely in Israel. Rather than care about a one or two state solution, she cares about a system of equity and fairness where all people can live in peace.
