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.
The Israeli explanation of being set upon by heavily armed peace activists needs to be put in context.
The Israeli Defence Force kills and maims with impunity, any resistance, is met with over whelming force.
Yesterday an American protesting against the flotilla killings was blinded by the IDF.
Israel seems on a collision course with the rest of humanity....We need to keep protesting and demanding justice.
