Wed Jul 7 2010 The Writing On the Warsaw Ghetto Wall- An Interview With Yonatan Shapira
On Sunday, June 27, Yonatan Shapira, an Israeli military refusenik, and Eaw Jasiewicz, a Polish activist sprayed "Liberate All Ghettos" in Hebrew, followed by ‘Free Gaza and Palestine’ in English on a wall of an original block in the Warsaw Ghetto.

In an interview to an Indybay reporter, Shapira states, "The Holocaust has been appropriated for years now by the Israeli government and the Israeli education system. The Israeli establishment would rather have Jews and Israelis in a state of frightened victim that worship militarism.....In our act we tried to separate between the actions of the Israeli Government and Jews.

"The lesson that should be learned from the holocaust are resistance to any form of racism. Resistance to ethnic cleansing and forced expulsion of people. Resistance to the starvation of humans and their confinement into ghettos. These are issues that the Israeli policy makers would like us to ignore and forget."
