Jeff Halper censored April 4, 2009

jeff-sml1Jeff Halper is now back in Israel after a successful two week speaking tour of Australia during the month of March.

Yet, the repercussions of his visit are still resounding. Certainly, those who were fortunate enough to hear him speak remain inspired by his vision and practical solutions for the seemingly insurmountable problems of the Israel/Palestine conflict, but it is those solutions that are so threatening to the organised Jewish community. In fact, so threatening that The Australian Jewish News refused to publish any advertisements promoting his speaking engagements and the Emanuel Synagogue in Sydney decided to cancel his proposed talk.

The talk went ahead in a church for an audience of Jews who have increasingly been prepared to break their silence on the destructive policies and practices that Israel is carrying out on an imprisoned population of almost 4 million Palestinians in their own land. More than that though, the debate continued with articles, editorial and letters in Sydney
