Israel’s week-long smorgasbord of abuse against Palestinians March 9-15

Israel’s week-long smorgasbord of abuse against Palestinians March 9-15

The headlines we’re not likely to see from Israel and Palestine tell the story we need to hear: Palestinians live under daily, brutal oppression at the hands of Israel.

For those who think Palestine is in a time of “calm” because there are no headlines, think again. Palestinians haven’t experienced calm in decades. Here is a sampling of headlines from the last week, as meticulously reported by our friends at the International Middle East Media Center.

The last week or so has seen a particularly broad variety of injustices perpetrated against Palestinians: at least 56 were abducted and/or detained (a disturbing number of them children); 18 injured or killed (again, several of them children); a large number of home demolitions (especially brutal since there is a pandemic going on); and a rash of Israeli settler violence.

Palestinians also experienced the confiscation of a flock of sheep, a truck, a tractor, and swaths of land – all of this is subsidized by the United States to the tune of over $10 million a day.
