Israel and Palestine are on the brink of a full scale war.
27 Palestinian children have already been killed. Mothers murdered. Hundreds injured.
The tensions are escalating. Fast.
It all relates to decades of Israel’s violent oppression of the Palestinian people, which Human Rights Watch just concluded is amounting to “crimes against humanity.”
It’s where it all began, and it’s where it must end.
Possibly the only way to stop this horrific cycle of Israel violently displacing Palestinians from their homes, the daily collective punishment of innocent families, Hamas firing rockets, and Israel bombing Gaza is to make the economic cost of this conflict too high to bear.
It’s what helped end apartheid in South Africa, and it can end apartheid here.
