"Israel in the Ballpark" Confronted With Truth About Palestine
"Israel in the Ballpark"
On June 6th, SBC Park in San Francisco hosted an event, sponsored by the Israel Center, the Jewish Community Relations Council and other mainstream sponsors, called "Israel in the Ballpark", intended to celebrate Israel's 56th anniversary as a Jewish state. A Jewish Voice for Peace, Students for Justice in Palestine, Jews for a Free Palestine and QUIT, among others, demonstrated in front of the park, questioning the celebratory nature of the event. Supporters attempted to drive home the reality of the brutal occupation in Palestine, with street theater and re-enactments of land seizures and home razing, in addition to illegal detentions and home searches at gunpoint. The local Jewish pro-Palestinian groups were excluded from the event by the sponsors, but they worked to get their message of Jewish opposition to the occupation out through educational leaflets and person-to-person dialogue.
