Merry Christmas, Bethlehem:

Palestinians, many of whom are Christian, are met with a military crackdown for protesting Trump’s provocations. This is near an Israeli checkpoint in Bethlehem in the occupied West Bank where Israel has deployed thousands of extra troops & armored vehicles prowl the streets. Hundreds of unarmed Palestinian protesters have been injured, beaten, arrested, & some have died.

Stand with Palestinians. Take Intifada international. Build BDS.
