Shot by Israel~American "Hanging by a Thread"

Tristan Anderson "Hanging by a Thread"

Here is the latest update on peaceful protester Tristan Anderson who was shot by Israeli Soldiers in the head. Rhetorical question here; “Why are Americans not outraged that Israel has attempted to murder yet another American?” I mean seriously, let us not forget the USS Liberty and all those men who have never seen justice. And what about Rachel Corrie? Her family will never see justice either. Why? Because Israel is America’s “friend.” Makes no sense does it……..With friends like these, who needs enemies I say.

U.S. activist Tristan Anderson 'hanging by a thread' after being injured in protest on Israel border

An American activist critically wounded by an Israeli gas canister in the West Bank is "hanging from a thread" after brain surgery Saturday, friends said.

Tristan Anderson, 38, a "tree-sitter" from Oakland, Calif., was hit in the forehead when troops shot tear gas during a protest of the separation barrier between Israel and the West Bank village of Naalin.

"He's really touch and go. He's hanging from a thread," friend Paul Larudee told the San Francisco Chronicle

They traveled to the West Bank to rally against the Israeli-erected barrier that could cut off Palestinian villages from valuable farmland.
