"It's the children, it's always the Palestinian children who burn into my memory," lamented International Solidarity Movement (ISM) volunteer Greta Berlin as the images of the latest Israeli assault on Gaza's Rafah refugee camp was televised. Berlin's journey to Palestine in 2003 as an ISM volunteer was part of a decades-long struggle to find justice for the Palestinians that began in 1967. Berlin stopped teaching for two years and worked full time to send medicine and aid to the Palestinians. Berlin and many volunteers oversaw dozens of garage sales and raised enough money to purchase a BMW ambulance in Germany which she and her husband escorted for delivery in Lebanon.
