Hundreds Protest Al Jazeera Journalist’s Killing Across Israel

(12.05.2022)

Hundreds gathered in rallies organized by Hadash and the Communist Party of Israel (CPI) on Wednesday and Thursday to protest the death of Palestinian-American journalist Shireen Abu Aqleh, who was killed by Israeli occupation forces and in the West Bank.

200 people demonstrated in Haifa, waving Palestinian flags, holding pictures of Abu-Aqleh and carrying signs bearing texts in Hebrew and Arabic reading “Occupation = terror.” “We stand here this evening in protest of the murder of the journalist Abu Aqleh today in Jenin,” Raja Zaatry, chairman of the Haifa branch of the Hadash, said. He described Abu Akleh’s killing as “a grave crime that is added to the many crimes of the occupation, which is the main and daily terror in this country.”

Police Violence at Palestinian Journalist’s Funeral Is Israel’s Mark of Cain

This is not just about damage to Israel’s image. This is a definitive incident that revealed the full ugliness of life under Israel’s occupation. No PR in the world can repair the damage, because there is no “narrative” that justifies the Israel Police’s conduct.

This is not only about contempt for the pain and grief of the Palestinians; it is about a fundamentally wrong attitude toward the Palestinian flag. This is the flag of the Palestinian Authority – an entity established as part of a deal with Israel, a deal that among other things enshrines the security cooperation that Israel has enjoyed for almost 30 years – and it is recognized by the whole world, including Israel.
