Breaking the Silence opens in Philly, week of events in DC

The Breaking the Silence exhibit opened last night to a crowd of a hundred participants who listened with stilled awe as Yehuda Shaul and Arnon Degani, 25- and 26-year-old IDF veterans respectively, guided them through the photographs of checkpoints, views through sniper scopes, settler grafitti, and at the end a wall of 25 photos of smiling, handsome young Israeli soldiers. Posed the question, “I don’t know what you think, what you feel, when you see this. These are normal, smiling, happy human beings who are asked to do this,” nobody needed to guess how either soldier felt about what was represented in the exhibit.

Whether you are right-wing or left-wing, this exhibit contains information vital to understanding the conflict, as can only be provided by the Israelis who were there first-hand. Come and see it for yourself, or check out Yehuda as he spends the next week in Washington, DC. Events list below or online here.

  1. I recently read Lawrence and Aaronsohn – T.E. Lawrence & Aaron Aaronsohn and the Seeds of the Arab-Israli Conflict – Ronald Florence, Viking Press 2007. It was an advanced uncorrected proof prior to publication. I can recommend it as a interesting recent addition to the common understanding of the origins of the present conflict.
