Support for Ezra Nawi

Ezra Nawi, a Jewish gay Israeli, helps poor locals who love him, and thwarting settlers and soldiers who view him with contempt. It is perhaps best to think of him as the Robin Hood of the South Hebron hills.

The full article from the New York Times is available here.

Ezra Nawi is to appear in Court on 16 August for trying to stop a military bulldozer from destroying the homes of Palestinian Bedouins in the South Hebron region. A campaign,, supported by Naomi Klein, Neve Gordon, Noam Chomsky and thousands of others has been set up to support Nawi and call for his liberation. The campaign also has a website,, where people are asked to sign a petition.
