Ladies and Gentlemen, good evening.
It was the night between the 30th and the 31st of May, when Israeli commandos attacked a ship in the Mediterranean. The ship, the Mavi Marmara, was part of a flotilla making its way towards Gaza to break the siege. 9 people died on the ship during the military takeover. Israel became a target to political attacks and condemnations coming from all over the world, and from within as well.
In October and November 2010, I had the opportunity to travel to the United States of America and take part in a series of events around the 10th Anniversary of UN Security Council Resolution 1325. I am one of six women that assessed six countries (Indonesia- Aceh, Colombia, Liberia, Israel-Palestine, Sri Lanka and Uganda).
