Thanks to Amy Goodman and Chris Hedges for the moving presentations on the status of Palestinians.

Democracy Now re-broadcast congresswoman Rashida Tlaib’s courageous speech of May 13 on the floor of the House.

Rashida Tlaib says that she is a reminder to colleagues that Palestinians exist, that we are human and we dream. She calls for Apartheid and ethnic cleansing of Palestinians to end.

She points out that currently military support of Israel is unconditional and that Israel as the largest recipient of security assistance from the US does not comply with federal laws and international human rights standards.

Chris Hedges is a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, Presbyterian minister, author and television host of On Contact. He was a foreign correspondent and bureau chief in the Middle East and the Balkans for fifteen years.

Here are excerpts of his 27 minute interview with Doctor Sami Al-Arian, Director of the Center for Islamic and Global Affairs in Istanbul - posted on line on May 17, 2021

Al-Arian says that claiming the right to defend itself Israel is violating international law by bombing Palestinians in their occupied lands. The US is enabling Israel with money and weapons i.e. $38 billion in defense aid over the next decade.

He also wants us to remember that the current conflict began with the attempt to evict Palestinians from their homes in Jerusalem and the attack on Arab worshipers in the Al-Aqsa Mosque.
