Guest Post (Kay Wilson): No Genocide Here

Kay Wilson is a British-born Israeli tour guide, jazz musician and cartoonist. She is the survivor of a brutal terror attack. Since the attack she is a public speaker for StandWithUs and OneFamily Together. Kay is currently campaigning to be given a chance to speak at J-Street’s next conference: visit her Facebook page for details.

Take a good look at each picture here. They are from my visit to Bethlehem when I went to see my Palestinian friend. The pictures show a normal town. Just like any other town, Bethlehem has wealthy neighbourhoods and poor neighbourhoods.

Personally, I saw some very nice housing. I saw some beautiful Palestinian shops. I saw Israeli goods sold in Palestinian supermarkets (which makes a mockery of the Boycott, Divestment & Sanctions BDS movement) and I saw that some Palestinians have cars which the rest of us can only dream of.

For peace to be possible, it has to be based on truth. And the truth is that there is no genocide against the Palestinians. There is no Holocaust being perpetrated by Jews. None. None. Not even one.
