"We silenced Breaking the Silence," cheered the Jewish Home Party, one of the parties that initiated the law the Knesset passed this week, which aims to prevent us from entering schools. So, hello to the folks of the Jewish Home Party - while you were busy destroying our democracy, we were busy in action: we brought students for a lecture in the Knesset so that they'll know what they'll be sent to do in the occupied territories; we offered lectures to groups, interviewed new testifiers, and even carried out four tours in the field, two of them for American Jews who had left Taglit-Birthright. And for your information, Minister of Education Naftali Bennett, though you tried with all your might to prevent youth from knowing what they're going to do in the occupied territories ahead of their enlistment: this week we'll hold three events with youth ahead of their enlistment, to tell them about the violent reality that you prefer to hide. Despite (and sometimes partly in thanks to) the legislation, incitement, and government persecution, we manage to do a lot, every day, and everywhere. Especially because we're not alone. We have you. And we want to say thank you and ask - help us continue: They want silencing - you help break the silence. Now is the time to host a lecture at your home: https://goo.gl/eVgdXx Help us facilitate more programming and interview more testifiers - donate to us: https://www.breakingthesilence.org.il/donate
People ask us why we talk about the occupation abroad. Our Exec. Director Avner Gvaryahu answered that loud and clear in this interview: The government says that if you want to support Israel you need to support the occupation. Other voices say that to oppose the occupation you need to oppose Israel. We disagree with both - we oppose the occupation because we support Israel.
"The so-called Breaking the Silence Law, which bars activists who present Israel and the IDF in a bad light from entering school premises, motivated high school students to attend a Breaking the Silence lecture in the Knesset"
