May, activists around the world stood with us. Yet, Western governments
offered rhetorical condemnation at best, and at worst ongoing
Apartheid Israel’s colonial violence and naked
aggression have never stopped. But neither has Palestinian resilience
and sumud (steadfastness).
In Sheikh Jarrah, Silwan,
Al-Naqab and Masafer Yatta and across historic Palestine, Palestinians
stand united against ongoing ethnic cleansing.
April, apartheid Israel murdered at least 23 Palestinians, including 3
women and 2 children; embarked on a campaign of mass arrest; and once
again bombed the Palestinian population of besieged Gaza.
