Claremont Students for Israel, an EMET for Israel group, with support from CAMERA on Campus and StandWithUs, presented a powerful speech by Kay Wilson on November 6th. Wilson, a British-Israeli survivor of a December 2010 terror attack, spoke about her life before and after the attack, as well as the impacts of it, and the idea of coexistence.

The EMET for Israel group liaison, Rachael Hamilton, hoped to show people “what Israeli citizens have gone through for decades, but also to give hope that there is plenty to live for.” Kay Wilson’s talk did just this. On the day of the terror attack in 2010, Wilson had been working, guiding a tour group through a hike. Left with serious injuries after the attack, Wilson was treated by both Israeli Arabs and Jews. This experience inspired her to speak to people, illustrating the coexistence that is already present, as well as the larger scale that it could exist on in the future.

While the lecture was on the shorter side, the audience felt the impact of Wilson’s story. Hamilton described Wilson as an “unbelievable speaker” and “very influential.”
