ISM Comments On Tom Hurndall Shooting Verdict


The Tom Hurndall Shooting - The International Solidarity Movement (ISM) comments upon the verdict:

The ISM acknowledges that though the Israeli military court has found Wahid Taysir guilty of manslaughter it has failed to question the policy and decision makers responsible for Tom's murder and the murder of thousands of other innocent people.

Tom would want us to remember him. But we also know he'd want us to remember that thousands of innocent Palestinians have died under similar circumstances. These people's deaths have not been investigated, and have often been lied about, claiming the victims to be combatants or explained away with empty phrases like "caught in the crossfire" or "tragic accident."

We pay tribute to the courage and determination of the Hurndall family, who despite their grief, fought for justice, and overcame every obstacle the Israeli Government and Army put in front of them.

Tom Hurndall is never far from our thoughts, and he continues to inspire our Palestinian, Israeli, and International volunteers as we begin our Freedom Summer 2005 campaign in the Occupied Territories.
