Iman al-Hams: dehumanization

August 31, 2010

In 2004 an Israeli captain shot Iman al-Hams, a Palestinian schoolgirl.

No, let me state it more accurately: he actually emptied the entire magazine of his automatic rifle into her. And admitted having done so. He explains why: “Anything that’s mobile, that moves in the zone, even if it’s a three-year-old, needs to be killed.”

And was acquitted by a court.

The dehumanization of Palestinians is one of the tools of occupation. Failing to hold accountable even a soldier who advocates killing three-year-olds makes a terrible statement about how human those three-year-olds are seen to be.

BDS. Because a policy of killing three-year-olds must be stopped.
