The injustice of Israel’s occupation of Palestine is so glaring that it is difficult for its supporters to defend it, so they tend to opt for suppressing the voices exposing it. This was the case a couple of weeks ago, when an event on Capitol Hill on the abuse of Palestinian children under Israeli occupation was smeared by the Israel Project. Not only was the event misrepresented as “hate speech”, but the Congressman whose office reserved a room for the event, Representative Mark Pocan, was also targeted, in a clear attempt to intimidate members of Congress from allowing voices that humanize Palestinians from being heard in Washington. The video above tells that story.
