Former Israeli Air Force captain and Israel boycott activist Yonatan Shapira spray-painted pro-Palestinian graffiti on the walls of the Warsaw Ghetto last week, Israel Channel 10 reported on Sunday.
Shapira was shown on camera the previous Sunday spraying the slogans “Free all ghettos” and “Free Palestine and Gaza” on the walls of the Jewish ghetto in the Polish city – famed site of Jewish resistance to the Nazis – and then hoisting upon the wall a Palestinian flag on a rope with a bottle attached at the end that he threw over the other side.
Expressing pride in his work, he said, “We think it would be great that when the next groups of Israeli kids come to visit the Warsaw Ghetto they will see that a bunch of Israeli and international activists have left behind a surprise for them.”
Shapira added, “Gaza is the ghetto.”
No criminal charges have been brought against Shapira.
