This is the body of Samah Zuhair Mubarak, a 16-year-old Palestinian girl extrajudicially executed & left bleeding to death today at a checkpoint in the occupied West Bank. Israeli occupying soldiers shot her to death & justified it by saying she tried to stab a soldier with the green knife shown here just above her left knee. Remember what French Zionist Bernard-Henri Lévy called the “Stabbing Intifada” & other Zionists & apologists for Israeli crimes called the “Knife Intifada” or the “Lone Wolves Intifada” in 2015? That’s the so-called ‘Intifada’ when the Israeli army gunned down Palestinian young people on an almost daily basis & planted knives on them justify it. There was even film footage of Israeli soldiers planting a knife on one victim.
It isn’t possible to know what immediately incited the occupying soldiers to gun this young girl down in cold blood–other than they’re trained in genocide–because the forensics will be done by the Israeli military. The certainty is that she did absolutely nothing to provoke this monstrous crime. May she Rest In Peace. And may we work tirelessly to build Palestinian solidarity by honoring BDS, with rallies, forums, educational forums.
End the occupation of Palestine! Self-determination for Palestinians!
