Amer Shurrab - Witness


The Chicago Hearing brought together witnesses to tell seldom-heard stories from Israel-Palestine that raised critical questions about the effects of U.S. policies in the region. Does Israel's explanation of security legitimize its violations of international law? Does the U.S. government condone Israeli policies and practices that would not be tolerated if replicated in America by the U.S. government?


Amer Shurrab and Cindy Corrie testified on the topic of Military Aid.
