Security camera footage shows that this Palestinian boy was shot in the eye as he stood in a sheltered place with his cousin, doing nothing. Rights groups have long condemned Israel’s use of rubber-coated steel bullets, which have repeatedly killed and wounded Palestinians.

Not a day goes by during which Israeli military and/or settlers do not commit human rights violations against the people of Palestine – from abduction and shooting to land theft and home demolition. Scan 7 days of headlines for a sampling.
A Palestinian couple follows Israeli soldier’s orders; one ends up in the morgue, the other in the hospital. Israeli military opened fire on their car near a checkpoint in Palestinian Territory, not Israel.
The incident is all too common: Palestinians gather on a Friday to protest the theft of their land; Israeli soldiers respond with live fire, killing a protester and enabling the land grab to go on, unhindered.
Even though Israel is about to go under the microscope of the International Criminal Court, it continues to defy international law by abusing the human rights of Palestinians. Why? We want to hear your theories.
Israeli troops shot a Palestinian protester in the head in the West Bank on Friday during a demonstration against Israel’s confiscation of village land – contains video.
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.
Israel’s internal security service, Shin Bet, interrogated a field researcher for rights group B’Tselem who they said was always around during Palestinian activity, and has been “making trouble and threatening the army.”
His troublemaking includes reporting on an unarmed Palestinian who was shot in the neck and paralyzed.
Again, the official story of a Palestinian ‘terror attack’ crumbles upon closer inspection of video footage. Ahmad Erekat has died; Israel is covering up.
Americans, if you think the Palestinian issue is unrelated to you, think again: Israeli violence is being perpetrated in your name, with money that should be spent to make your lives better.
