Palestinian-American death underscores rampant Israeli violence

Early Wednesday morning, Israeli soldiers detained, blindfolded, handcuffed & beat 80-year-old Palestinian-American Omar Abdalmajeed As’ad. They claim they left him alive in a building that was under construction. He died soon after. It remains to be seen whether Israel will be held accountable. 

Israeli troops shoot dead young Palestinian mother

Mai Afaneh had earned her doctorate in psychology in Jordan, was happily teaching at a local university, and had a good family life with her husband and 5-year-old daughter… ‘She was not politically affiliated. All she cared about was her studies and helping her family and husband…’ She was killed by Israeli soldiers in the West Bank; this is Palestinian territory, not Israel.
