Rashida Tlaib: Palestinians Want to Be Free, It’s Israel’s Fault

Palestinian officials said an Egyptian-mediated ceasefire agreement was reached with Israel on Monday to end the recent surge of violence in the Gaza Strip and southern Israel.

In two days of fighting, more than 600 rockets were launched at Israel, while the Israeli army struck hundreds of targets in the Gaza Strip.

While the rest of the world is condemning the 600 rockets that Hamas and PIJ launched against  Israeli innocent population, the Democratic representative Rashida Tlaib, who understands the situation in Palestine better than anyone else, explains how we all got this wrong. She says:

When will the world stop dehumanizing our Palestinian people who just want to be free? Headlines like this & framing it in this way just feeds into the continued lack of responsibility on Israel who unjustly oppress & target Palestinian children and families.
