Ora Wise was born in Jerusalem, the daughter of a rabbi. Jordan Flaherty is a union organizer living in New York City, who recently spent time in Palestinain refugee camps. Both are taking part in a nationwide tour to discuss the living and human rights conditions for Palestinians in the occupied territories. They say that for Palestinians, life is under constant control by the Israeli military: curfews, being forced to stay in their houses at gunpoint, massive travel restrictions, guilt by association and the lack of due process. The Palestinian Truth Tour hopes to make Americans aware of the conditions for the Palestinians which provide a breeding ground for hatred and terror.
