Dear Friend,

I want you to know about a brave and inspiring person who needs your help. His name is Ezra Nawi. He’s an Israeli human rights activist who faces jail time for trying to stop a military bulldozer from destroying the homes of Palestinian Bedouins in the South Hebron region. To watch a dramatic video of the incident and his arrest, and to write a letter demanding his freedom, go to

Nawi’s friends — including Naomi Klein, Neve Gordon and Noam Chomsky— have launched a campaign to generate tens of thousands of letters to Israeli embassies all over the world before he is due to be sentenced in July.

Ezra Nawi is a Jewish Israeli of Iraqi descent who speaks fluent Arabic. He is a gay man in his fifties and a plumber by trade. He is loved by those with little power, to whom he dedicates his life, and hated by the Jewish settlers, military and police.

Please consider taking a minute to send a letter to the Israeli Consulate on behalf of Ezra Nawi. Sign the letter and learn more about Ezra Nawi at http://freeEzra.org .
