Diana Neslen (Jews for Justice for Palestinians): a Jewish perspective on human rights and Israel

A talk by Diana Neslen, entitled 'Human rights: A Jewish perspective on Israel'. Diana is a member of Jews for Justice for Palestinians. The talk was organised by the Oxford Palestine Solidarity Campaign. (13 September 2011)

"Most of us, dissident Jews, feel existential pain on seeing how Israel treats those over whom it has dominium. Our concerns are enhanced by the knowledge that far from singling out Israel for attack, the leaders of the Western world make every effort to genuflect to her and to follow her lead… [W]e feel even more passionately that it is up to us to challenge the craven behaviour of the powers that be."
