151223 CPT Resistence

(Christian Peacemaker Team) Hebron, December 12, 2015 – On the morning of 20 December 2015 Israeli soldiers were stopping all Palestinian men, young and old, for checks. The soldiers first indicated that the men should throw their IDs on the ground and, after checking them, the soldiers threw them back on the ground. It was disrespectful. The CPTer there was surprised to see a soldier bringing out a chair for an older Palestinian man. The man told her proudly, ‘I refused to throw my photo on the street, and they brought a chair.’ He put his ID on the chair and the soldiers returned it to the chair after checking. A small act of resistance. An important assertion of one man’s humanity and dignity.
