This Is Subversion

From UK Yachad:-

Is dividing Jerusalem as controversial as people think it sounds? Are the military courts in the West Bank the correct way to administer justice for the 2.5 million Palestinians that live under Israeli occupation? 

Please join us over the next few weeks  to meet with experts and start a conversation within UK Jewry about these issues which are at the heart of the ongoing conflict. 

The Law in these Parts - Join us for the UK premiere of this award winning documentary film about the military courts in Israel. The film is the winner of the best documentary at the Sundance Film Festival 2012 and best documentary at the Jerusalem Film Festival 2011. The screening will be followed with a Q&A with the director Ra'anan Alexandrowicz.

There is a law, by the way, which declares Jerusalem united:

Basic Law: Jerusalem, Capital of Israel

 1. Jerusalem, complete and united, is the capital of Israel.

Liberals, progressives and humanists honor and respect the law, no?
