Program examines survival of democracy in Israel

By From page A5 | November 21, 2012

Hillel Damron, filmmaker, author and blogger, will address the question of the survival of democracy in Israel, and the fading dream of the two-state solution, on Thursday, Nov. 29, in Davis. He will speak at 7 p.m. in the Social Hall at Congregation Bet Haverim, 1715 Anderson Road.

Damron is former executive director of Hillel at UC Davis and Sacramento State. He is a former officer in the Israeli Defense Force and air marshal on El Al Israeli Airlines. He is a dual American-Israeli citizen.

He will speak about his blog post, “Jewish Holy War,” which discusses the extreme actions of some in the Israeli settler movement, including “Price Tags,” which one settler describes as a Jewish holy war. Visit his blog at www.good4jews.com, or read the full post at http://good4jews.wordpress.com/2012/01/26/jewish-holy-war.

This program is free and open to the public and is sponsored by Israel Peace Alternatives. For more information, visit www.bethaverim.org or call 530-758-0842.
