Andre Pshenichnikov, a 23-year-old Jewish immigrant from Tajikistan, has said that he plans to live in the Deheishe Refugee Camp near Bethlehem, where he used to work as a waiter and a construction worker.

He is currently traveling in Europe for two months and plans to move to the occupied West Bank when he returns home.

He began questioning Israel’s policies toward Palestine while he was still serving in the military.

Now an outspoken anti-Zionist figure, Pshenichnikov told the Associated Press, “I hate Zionism… I want to be part of the Palestinian resistance… I call for other Israelis who support the existence of a state of Palestine to do the same, to come live in the West Bank or Gaza as Palestinians.”
