Monday 8: At George W. Truett Seminary, Baylor University, in the United States –SARA ROY (senior research scholar at the Center for Middle Eastern Studies, Harvard University, whom Jewish Noam Chomsky once described as 'the foremost commentator and academic on the [Israel-Palestine] conflict') states that –
Nazi treatment of Jews and Israeli soldiers' treatment of Palestinians, on many occasions, "were absolutely equivalent in principle, intent, and impact: to humiliate and dehumanize" and "...Israel’s occupation of the Palestinians is the crux of the problem between the two peoples, and it will remain so until it ends. For the last thirty-five years, occupation has meant dislocation and dispersion; the separation of families; the denial of human, civil, legal, political, and economic rights imposed by a system of military rule; the torture of thousands; the confiscation of tens of thousands of acres of land and the uprooting of tens of thousands of trees; the destruction of more than 7,000 Palestinian homes; the building of illegal Israeli [Jewish] settlements on Palestinian lands and the doubling of the settler population over the last ten years; first the undermining of the Palestinian economy and now its destruction; closure; curfew; geographic fragmentation; demographic isolation; and collective punishment."
