1,900+ Palestinian citizens of Israel have been arrested in the last month. Israel launched operation "Law and Order" in May, arresting anyone they suspected of protesting against the bombardment of Gaza, the attacks at Al Aqsa and the expulsion of families in Sheikh Jarrah.

Naftali Bennett, who is expected to succeed Benjamin Netanyahu, is more of an extreme opponent of Palestinian rights.

This Palestinian marathon runner says he was attacked at least 6 times and left unable to walk the next day after Israeli forces charged the finish line of a race in East Jerusalem (warning: distressing)

Arab and Palestinian Israelis make up 15% of voters, but Arab parties have only 10% of Knesset seats, reflecting growing alienation of many voters amid "controversial laws [that] emphasize Jewish supremacy at the expense of the Arab minority."

A Palestinian child should be sitting in a classroom, not in rubble. World leaders must act immediately to protect the human rights of Palestinians.

The Palestinian woman who captured the world's attention when she confronted an Israeli settler tells AJ+ how she's fighting to #SaveSheikhJarrah . "We are not going anywhere. We'll stay in our homes until the last moment."

"You are stealing my house." This is what a Palestinian woman told an Israeli settler, as he tried to take over her family's home in occupied East Jerusalem's Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood.

I saw a lot more instances of entirely unnecessary, provocative behavior by Israeli police/military today. At Damascus Gate (stun grenades thrown at peaceful Palestinian group), in Sheikh Jarrah (skunk water fired on Palestinian homes) & Bethlehem (volleys of tear gas)

Yesterday, Israel bombed the office of the Palestine Children's Relief Fund, a charity in Gaza that provides free medical care for Palestinian children in need. This is a war crime.

I stand with the Palestinian people. My heart aches for the families who have lost loved ones. We can not stand as silent witnesses to children being orphaned and murdered and not demand for the human rights of all Palestinians! This must end. Free Palestine.

If the United States is going to be a credible voice on human rights on the global stage, we must uphold international standards of human rights consistently. We must recognize that Palestinian rights matter. Palestinian lives matter.

The United States must speak out strongly against the violence by government-allied Israeli extremists in East Jerusalem and the West Bank, and make clear that the evictions of Palestinian families must not go forward.

Palestinian civilians are currently suffering in great numbers in Jerusalem, Gaza, and the West Bank - here are some great organizations you can donate to in order to help those in need.
