Farid Esack Open Letter to the Palestinian People

I went to Israel and the West Bank in November of 2010 to see the situation first hand: to meet with people and hear their stories; to get a sense of the reality of everyday life, both throughout Israel and throughout the West Bank.

One day while en route from one meeting in Jerusalem to another near Ramallah, the road took us beside the cold, gray wall of separation erected by Israel. As we drove, I began to notice that there was a text near the top which extended in both directions as far as the eye could see. It seemed to a message talking about apartheid. We turned the car around, went back to the beginning, and filmed it in its entirety. As it turned out, it is an open letter to the people of Palestine from South African theologian Dr. Farid Esack. What follows is that message.
