Palestine- a place of refuge for some, but a danger zone for others.

For the past 70 years, the Palestinian territory has been under siege by Israeli troops who are barging into homes, kidnapping children, claiming property that isn’t theirs, and taking lives. A recent uprising took place on Monday, May 14, when the U.S. had officially relocated its embassy from Tel Aviv, Israel to Jerusalem.

Palestinian demonstrators immediately began protesting the act, resulting in the killing of at least 58 people by Israeli soldiers. More than 2,700 Palestinians were injured along the border of Gaza, and at least 1,350 of them were held at gunpoint. T

he problem is that the United States’ formality over the 70th anniversary of Israel completely contrasts the conflict occurring less than 40 miles away. While America was celebrating its relocation of the embassy and congratulating Israel for its success, Palestinians were getting tear-gassed by Israeli troops when they attempted to cross the border fence separating Gaza and Israel.

Therefore, May 14 is now marked as the deadliest day of violence since the 2014 Gaza War. Hopefully, the genocide within Palestine will soon come to an end, offering Palestinians the freedom they’ve been striving for so long.
