PEACE with Penny: Penny S. Tee interviewed Myron Joshua, an Israeli settler and Peace activist who lives in the West Bank. His compassion for his Palestinian neighbors might surprise you.
Myron’s life has been a veritable history lesson of Israel from his family evading Nazi Germany before World War II, living today in Kibbutz Kfar Etzion, the site of the infamous 1948 Jewish massacre the day before the declaration of the state of Israel, to him being in the thick of the 1967 6-Day war which produced the heated term, “Occupied territory.”
Today, in his work with Roots-Shorashim-Judur, an organization striving to improve relationships between Israelis and Palestinians in the West Bank, Myron acts as a Roots’ liaison to the Civil Administration—Israel’s governing body in the West Bank, helping Palestinians navigate the difficult bureaucracy.
May You Live in Peace, שלום and سلام.
