ISIL has no ideology of any value to human beings. They have rampaged across cities and villages, killing innocent unarmed civilians in acts of cowardly violence. … No just God would stand for what they did yesterday and what they do every single day.

Title: 90 Year Old Holocaust Survivor Arrested in St Louis ——- Description: Just days after her 90th birthday, Holocaust survivor Hedy Epstein was arrested Monday in St. Louis when she was part of a protest outside Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon’s office. Epstein was born in Germany and left in 1939 on a Kindertransport to England. Her parents died in Auschwitz. Epstein is a co-founder of the St. Louis Palestine Solidarity Committee and St. Louis branch of Jewish Voice for Peace. In 2011, she was part of the Gaza Freedom Flotilla, and was a passenger on the U.S.-flagged ship, The Audacity of Hope. Over the years she has made many solidarity trips to the West Bank. Epstein criticizes the police handling of protests in Ferguson. “It’s the same kind of violence that I’ve observed when I was in the Israeli-occupied Palestine,” Epstein says. “I know what it feels like to be discriminated against, to be oppressed, and I can’t stand idly by when I see there are problems.” ——- By: freespeechtv
