"Despite the global coronavirus pandemic, Israel has stepped up its arrest of Palestinian children in the occupied territories, a new report from Defense for Children International – Palestine (DCIP) says.
According to the report, released on Tuesday, 194 Palestinian children detained in Israeli prisons and detention centers, marking a six percent increase from January.
Using data released by the Israeli Prison Service (IPS), DCIP found that as of March 31 only 28 percent of Palestinian child detainees were actually serving out sentences, while the rest, over 60 percent of them (117 out of 194) were being held in pretrial custodial detention."
-->No major media in the US covered this story. The apartheid crimes of Israel are always off the table when it comes to our mainstream press.

"It is clear that those pushing annexation intend to prevent the creation of a Palestinian state alongside Israel. It is also clear they have no intention of extending citizenship to the millions of Palestinians living inside and between the enclaves annexed by Israel.
The annexationists, therefore, offer a future in which Israel rules over millions of Palestinians without equal rights or protections. That is not democracy. That is not what Israel’s founders envisioned when they drafted a declaration of independence that promised equal rights to all.
Annexation is opposed by a plurality of Israelis and a majority of Palestinians, who understand that it would have disastrous consequences for regional stability, human rights and prospects for a just and sustainable peace."
-->Even J Street, a middle of the road Jewish lobbying group is appalled at what Israel and the US are planning to do: create an apartheid state in the Holy Land. Where have them been for the last 49 years? Where has our media been too?
