Straw Widow


“Straw Widow” is the term the Israeli Army gives to an operation where a small combat unit takes over a Palestinian family house for outlook purposes. During the average time of 24-48 hrs. the family is held captive in their own house, with no communication to the outside world.

My friend Nadav Porat-Chomsky, a film student in Beit-Berl school of arts in Israel, is trying to crowdfund his planned documentary on this tactique, which isn’t punished by the Israeli justice despite their obvious disregard for human rights. I will support him. Will you do it too?

“Viuda de Paja” es el término que le da el ejército de Israel a una operación en la que una unidad de combate toma la casa de una familia palestina, para propósitos de observación. Durante un tiempo promedio de 24 a 48 horas, se mantiene a la familia cautiva dentro de su propia casa, sin comunicación con el mundo exterior.

Mi amigo Nadav Porat-Chomsky, estudiante de cine en la escuela de artes Beit-Berl en Israel, está tratando de obtener financiamiento para realizar un documental acerca de esta táctica, que no es castigada por la justicia israelí a pesar de su obvio desprecio por los derechos humanos. Yo lo voy a apoyar. ¿Quieres hacerlo también?
