Arabic TV Interview - Russia Today - September 28, 2010.
The Jewish Peace Boat of Solidarity to Gaza was the subject. I was asked:
1. How was the peace boat diverted to Ashdod
2. What can we expect in the future for peace?
3. What will happen with the goods for Gazans?
4. How do I feel and relate to the people of Gaza
I answered, in brief, that the peace was overtaken peacefully.
I asserted that we can expect more boats to break the siege, more rallies for the people of Gaza, and more creative initiatives for peace and coexistence.
I added that the military can seize toys and musical instruments, but they cannot take away the hope this boat and others bring. No one will take away the hope.
I speak of hope as a Jewish person, an Israeli, and as as the grandson of Holocaust survivors. When a boat of solidarity says we can do better, we must ask: "What can we do?"
