Our Silence Is Complicity When It Comes to Palestinian Rights

“Watching live videos of young Israeli Jews in Jerusalem chanting, with unbridled venom and violence: ‘Death to the Arabs,’ ‘May your village burn,’ and other epithets (that belie a breath-taking inhumanity), is beyond heartbreaking. How can one not feel shaken to your core watching this? Call for an end to US military aid to Israel, which is funding ethnic cleansing and Israel’s ongoing harm against the Palestinian people. But this behavior, sadly, is an expected outcome of a society that is grounded at its core in Jewish supremacy and in its expulsion (from their land and homes) of the Indigenous Palestinian people who had been living there. History matters, and this history matters a great deal.” (06/14/22)
