Israelis blind activist protesting against massacre
21 year old, USA citizen, Emily Henochowicz lost her left eye due to a tear gas bomb thrown by Israel border soldiers, which hit her in the face.
Emily Henochowich, a Jewish-origin atheist, is an art student at Cooper Union in East Village, Manhattan. Henochowicz is currently in Hadassah Hospital in Jerusalem undergoing surgery to remove her left eye.
