As you surely know, Americans For A Safe Israel’s mission is to educate the public on the truth about Israel. We also support Sovereignty over all of Israel, and especially Judea and Samaria.
In every fight for the truth, aside from advocacy organizations and politicians vigorously working toward that goal, there are many behind the scenes people who are an equally important part of the process too. The late Miri Tsahi was one such person.
The Sovereignty Movement issued a statement:
The Sovereignty Movement expresses its deep sorrow on the passing of the photographer and ideologist Miri Tsahi, z”l, a friend of the movement, a partner who was with us every step of the way, since the movement’s inception.
“Miri conveyed her great love for the Land of Israel through the lens of her camera to the general public. In her unique way, she strengthened in all of us, the connection and historical duty to the ancestral landscapes; to the images of the Land of Israel and historic moments that she documented – moments of sorrow, joy, pain and excitement”, say the co-chairwomen of the movement, Yehudit Katsover and Nadia Matar.
“Miri accompanied us and others in tasks of settlement and clinging to the Land of Israel; she was always there, near the residents and the settlers, day and night, to document, augment and eternalize it for future generations. There would have been a huge gap in the story of the settlement of Judea and Samaria if Miri had not been there with her camera at the right times and the right places.
The two women note Miri Tsahi’s contribution to the movement through her professional world as well, as she rushed to volunteer the best of her photographs of the Land of Israel for the movement’s publications. “She saw it as her personal mission to contribute her unique talents to the advancement of the vision of Sovereignty”.
