馃What other country -- U.S 'ally' or not -- could murder a US citizen/@ajarabic journalist one week, then get a meeting with @jakesullivan46 at the @WhiteHouse the following week? Not ONE mention of #ShireenAbuAkleh in Sullivan's list of discussion points. This is not normal.
I had an excellent meeting with Israeli Minister of Defense Benny Gantz at the White House today. We discussed ironclad support for Israel鈥檚 security, ways to address Iranian aggression, efforts to lower tensions between Israelis and Palestinians, and support for Ukraine.

. @SecDef are you going to do anything during your meeting with @gantzbe to hold Israel accountable for its war crime of assassinating a US citizen & Palestinian journalist? Or are you going to be complicit and help @israel clean up its mess as usual?
Defense Minister Benny Gantz is heading to the US on Wednesday. Will meet with his counterpart, Lloyd Austin on Thursday.

馃毃 Despite Israel鈥檚 murder of a US citizen last week, Israel defense minister @gantzbe is being welcomed to the US. Did you hold Israel accountable for its murder of Shireen Abu Akleh, @jakejsullivan? Did you even mention her murder? This is not normal.

Ragheb is BOTH a child at 13-years old and intellectually disabled. Israel's practice of arbitrary detention knows no bounds. Thank you @btselem for covering Ragheb Samhan's story.
This is Ragheb Samhan, an intellectually disabled 13-year-old. Soldiers assaulted him, tied his hands, blindfolded him and took him, alone, and without informing anyone. After about two hours, they released him at the entrance to his village, handcuffed and blindfolded. >

The tides are not only changing here in the US. All over the world, more and more people are demanding recognition of the long omitted rights of the Palestinian people. #AMPalestine

How disgraceful?! Just like at Shireen's funeral, Israeli Occupation Forces attach the funeral of young Jerusalemite Waleed Al-Shareef that passed away today due to his critical head injury at the hands of IOF while raiding Masjid Al-Aqsa on the third Friday of this past Ramadan.

HISTORIC! Thank you, @RepRashida, for being a CHAMPION of Palestinian rights in Congress -- and salute to @RepAOC, @BettyMcCollum04, @Ilhan, and @RepMarieNewman for taking this courageous stand for #Palestine!
Today, @RepRashida historically introduced a House resolution recognizing the Palestinian Nakba in commemoration of the 74th anniversary of this catastrophic crime against the Palestinian people that still shapes their experience today. #Nakba74 (1/2)

#ShireenAbuAkleh's murder requires far more than a shallow investigation. Israel must face financial and diplomatic accountability, especially from its largest military sponsor, the U.S.
Saint Joseph hospital releases CCTV footage from Friday, showing the Israeli police storming the hospital and attacking participants in the funeral of #ShireenAbuAkleh and also patients who arrived for treatment

The US must ensure that Israel pays the price for the brutal assassination of a courageous Palestinian-American. Israel is a rogue state that is rebellious against every value that defines humanity. It鈥檚 a pariah & a terrorist state that must be treated as such. #ShireenAbuAkleh
"Do you trust Israel investigating itself?" Palestinian journalist @SMArikat confronted U.S. State Dept spokesperson Ned Price over his claims Israel would fairly investigate its killing of #ShireenAbuAkleh.
