    If it’s at all possible, I hope you’ll attend the funeral tomorrow in the village. If it’s a repeat of Mustafa’s funeral, the IOF will spray the mourners with skunk water.

      It seems Hamdi al Falah was murdered in an area where no protests were taking place:

      But it was in the Hebron area. Dangerous to be Palestinian there.

    it’s hunting season for the soldiers lusting after their prey as if they were animals as the politicians stir their society towards genocide.

    Doesn’t sound as if ‘their society” needs much stirring ‘towards genocide.”

    and the world, looks on or away…..
    let’s it happen and happen again
    without end?
    That is also the right to Israeli self-defense!
    The right to israeli self-defense = licence to kill!
    With impunity.
