The May 11, 2022, killing of Palestinian-American journalist Shireen Abu Akleh is part of a deadly, decades-long pattern. Over 22 years, the Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) has documented at least 20 journalists killed by Israeli forces. Despite numerous IDF probes, no one has ever been charged or held responsible for these deaths. The impunity in these cases has severely undermined the freedom of the press, leaving the rights of journalists uncertain.

Israel has destroyed Palestinian hospitals, attacked patients, denied medical travel permits & targeted healthcare workers…The American Medical Association has issued press releases calling the targeting of healthcare workers in Ukraine “unconscionable.” They must also do this for Palestinians…
Antony Blinken’s exchange with Nooran Abuhamdan at her Georgetown graduation was an insult to the cause of justice – but also a typical response to the Palestinian issue.
