Israeli Mom Protests For Palestinian Rights

terry benningaTerry Benninga is an American-born Israeli mother of three who demonstrates for the rights of Palestinians.

She grew up in St.Louis, married when she was a student and settled with her husband in Jerusalem in 1969; it has since become her home.

Her two young adult children, Sarah and Zvi are activists who protest against Israeli laws that permit the occupation of Palestinian homes by Israeli settlers.

Gretchen WallaceIt is 2004.  You’ll find me sitting in a one room metal shack owned by a woman named Zolecka Ntuli in a township outside of Cape Town.

I’d gone to South Africa on a personal journey to learn more about HIV/AIDS.

I spent a month crisscrossing the country, interviewing social workers, health care workers, NGOs, social entrepreneurs, academics, business leaders and individuals.
