Palestinian American teen Tariq Khdeir, "I'm speechless" on beating by Israeli police
Mohammed Abu Khdeir's death follows the death of three Israeli teenage settlers' deaths in Occupied West Bank by terrorists. In response to the Israeli teens' deaths, Israeli Army under Netanyahu's watch has been bombing the blockaded and besieged Gaza Strip. The justification being that Hamas started firing rockets into Israeli towns bordering the blocked Gaza Strip. Palestinians prisoners who were initially release as part of previous negotiations between Israeli and Palestinian officials were rearrested during Israeli army massive sweep through the West Bank to find the three teens. The sweep also involved Israeli soldiers bursting through people's homes and yards arresting possible suspects of the kidnapping. Most of the arrested Palestinians saved for the former prisoners were innocent civilians not guilty of kidnapping the three teens. Palestinian families, cultural and religious officials both Christian and Muslims have long argued that Western mainstream media downplays the deaths of Palestinian children and extension the brutality shown to Palestinian children and teens by Israeli soldiers and police. Israelis' deaths no matter if they are children or adults are always broadcast and their lives humanize for the rest of the world to identity with while the Palestinian child/adults are blamed for their own death or somehow deserve scorn for fighting against Israeli brutality and excessive force through home demolitions, bombings or beatings.
