In the live footage, the Caterpillar D-9 bulldozer driverâs radio transmission graphically illustrates the dehumanizing reality of the military occupation of East Jerusalem, the West Bank and the siege of Gaza:
âI think the object got hitâŠ.â
âYes, I saw him I think he is dead.â
Rachelâs death was tragic and brought the worldâs attention to the suffering ad deaths of the thousands of Palestinians.
Please donât think that the situation in the West Bank and Gaza are any different today. The ethnic cleansing of Palestine continues every day.
We should not allow this to become normalized in our thinking.
Palestine may not be the leading news story in Western media but random ID checks, body searches, delays, restrictions of movement, detentions, arrests, collective punishment, destruction of property including olive trees and agricultural crops, theft, home invasions, deprivations of infrastructure, bureaucratic and economic occupation, the siege of Gaza and aggressive military attacks continue constantly.
The challenge Rachel has brought to all our lives is to get out of our comfort zones and act on our convictions.
