Irish Nobel Peace Laureate Mairead Maguire Shot With Rubber Bullet by Israeli Military at Nonviolent Protest

Nice way to treat a Nobel Peace Prize recipient. Of course, she deserves no better and no worse treatment than any other human being.

I see the IDF is going nuts again (i.e., still) in the OTs this weekend:

Israel Kills Eight Palestinians, Including 17-Year-Old Girl
In the West Bank, Israeli forces killed eight Palestinians over the past two days including a 17-year-old girl and a Palestinian police officer. Six of the Palestinians were killed on Saturday making it the deadliest day so far this year in the occupied territories. Palestinian Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh of Hamas condemned the killings

  • Ismael Haniyeh: "I express the condemnation of the government to the crimes of assassinations killings and liquidations conducted by the Israeli occupation forces. This is a new proof on the brutality of the occupation and the continued desire to shed Palestinian blood."
The 17-year-old Palestinian girl, Bushra Barghish, was killed after being shot in the head while she stood at her window in Jenin refugee camp. The girl's mother described what happened.
  • Mother of Bushra Barghish: "I am calling her name, Bushra, and within seconds I found her dead in pool of blood underneath her."
