(video of his arrest after letter)
Every so often someone comes along who is so brave and so inspiring that you can’t just sit back when you learn they need your help.
I am writing you today about one of these rare people.
His name is Erza Nawi.
You probably have never heard of him but because you May know our names, now you will know his.
Ezra Nawi is one of Israel’s most courageous human rights activists and without your help, in less than 30 days, he will likely go to jail.
His crime? He tried to stop a military bulldozer from destroying the homes of Palestinian Bedouins in the South Hebron region. These homes and the Palestinians who live in them have been under Israeli occupation for 42 years. They still live without electricity, running water, or basic services. They are continually harassed by Jewish settlers and the military.
