Israel Kills

Abby Zimet

There has been almost no mainstream media coverage of the latest tragedy of an Israeli occupation that continues to have its daily tragedies, but there should be: Mustafa Tamimi, 28, who regularly attended the weekly demonstrations in the West Bank village of Nabi Saleh, died after being hit in the head with a tear-gas canister fired at close range by an IDF soldier. Inconceivably, the IDF also attacked mourners at his funeral. There has been an online protest. It feels impossibly inadequate.

"Mustafa died because he threw stones. He died because he dared to speak a truth, with his hands, in a place where the truth is forbidden."
