It seems it is the fate of Palestinians to face the worst of apartheid policies under Israel’s military occupation.
Denial of rights, dis-possessions, expulsions, evictions, ID confiscations, house demolitions, land grabs, airstrikes, tank shelling, targeted assassinations, warships, refugees, military occupation. These are terms among many others that Palestinians are used to hearing and using.
The events at Al-Aqsa Mosque and Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood that happened in the past few days in the occupied holy city of Jerusalem is a reminder of the ethnic cleansing that has never stopped since 1948.
Over 300 peaceful worshipers were injured by Israeli rubber bullets, stun grenades, and tear gas canisters. Anger was high as Israeli attacks and violations took place during the holy month of Ramadan while worshipers were praying.
