PAJU occupy the Israeli Consulate

and the Big Shiny Gold Star of the day goes to.....PAJU, Palestinian and Jewish Unity

The Palestinian and Jewish Unity (PAJU) is a human rights organization that explicitly recognizes the right of the Palestinian people to national existence and to live in security. We condemn all violations of human rights. PAJU was co-founded in Montreal by Bruce Katz, a Jewish Canadian and Rezeq Faraj, a Palestinian Canadian who have been friends for more than 25 years. Our group is comprised of Jews, Palestinians and other Canadians of good conscience who work together to promote peace in the Middle East and to educate the public on the Palestinian question.

Members of this group got themselves arrested today at the Israeli Consulate in Toronto

Police arrest 8 protesters at Israeli consulate


Toronto police have arrested eight Canadian Jewish women who occupied the Israeli consulate on Bloor Street.

The group carried out the occupation to show their opposition to Israel's military operations in the Gaza Strip and its two-year economic blockade of the territory, Miriam Garfinkle, a spokesperson, told ctvtoronto.ca on Wednesday.

The most prominent of the eight arrested is Toronto activist Judy Rebick. But the group also includes Israeli filmmaker B.H. Yael, peace activists and students, she said.

for being such decent human beings, I am moving them to the great sites @. I admire the unity, it gives me hope.
Hurray!!!!
