This is the epitome of irresponsible journalism and storytelling. We, like all people, deserve to be portrayed *as people*. Your reliance on tired tropes is both dehumanizing and incredibly lazy (calling people who live in the camps human trash???). Those that live in the camps and the camps themselves do not exist for you to exploit them in your self aggrandizing, self flagellating poverty porn. Palestinians have not been “waiting” for justice to be served to them, like passive victims- they have been agents of their own destiny confronted with roadblock after blockade after siege after occupation. That you feel this is our “unfulfilled responsibility” is your own problem. Being Palestinian yourself does not exclude you from having to write about Palestinians with integrity.
