A Palestinian American and a friend who were trying to attend a peaceful protest against the Israel Occupation in Nabi Saleh, was preventing from doing so by IDF soldiers who detained them prior to entering the village for no reason, took their phones and hacked their twitter account and sent out tweets pretending to be the Palestinian-American they had in custody. It’s just blatant harassment.
Here are the hacked tweets the IDF sent out:
And his response once he got his phone back:
Being an American means nothing in Israel. If the U.S. ever treated Israelis the way they treated us…well, it just would never happen.
Israelis have become drunk on the power that comes with having total control over an occupied population. And as we know, absolute power corrupts absolutely. That they play the victim in this never-ending drama is truly incredible. But I’m sure there is a psychological explanation for the sadism and bullying, I’m just not interested in it.
