Earlier in the week New York University Students for Justice in Palestine held two events. The first, a candle light vigil in Washington Square Park “IN MEMORY OF ALL MEN, WOMEN & CHILDREN  LOST DURING ISRAEL’S ASSAULT ON GAZA  PILLAR OF CLOUD”  All the names were read aloud including the names of Israelis killed as a result of the Gaza assault. Thirty to forty people participated.

The second event,  “Reflections From  the Rubble”, was in NYU’s student activity center.  Two speakers addressed the meeting: Sherry Wolf , writer/activist and Hesham Mhanna, a Gaza journalist, currently a NYU student, who spoke about his experiences during the Zionist “Cast Lead” assault on Gaza. Mr. Mhanna spoke of the brutal actions perpetrated by the IDF that he witnessed and that were relayed to him by Gazans who pleaded with him to tell their stories to the world. He told them he would and is now keeping that promise.

    The title’s a bit off don’t you think? Almost sounds like Israeli propaganda. Giving Gaza the possessive (Gaza’s massacre) makes it seem that Gaza perpetrated the massacre, that Palestinians committed mass murder. The title really ought to be something like- “Israel’s Gaza massacre remembered…”
