This Israeli soldier detained & frisked this Palestinian young man with Down Syndrome. He has a learning disability; he’s not a vegetable or a child & should not be referred to as a boy or regarded as non compos mentis. He probably fully understands the outrages of occupation & wants to play a part in resisting it. Fully participating in civic & social life is the inspiration of the Self Advocacy Movement for & led by those with learning disabilities.
