Protest tonight in Haifa following arrests of demonstrators who called for an end to Gaza's blockade. Chants "Jews & Arabs refuse to be enemies", "enough with the killing & mourning, the occupation must end" & "no, no we won't accept fascism"

I’m devasted to learn that among the 10 innocent children murdered today was Sabika Sheikh—a Pakistani exchange student. She came here to learn—leaving her family thousands of miles behind—and we failed her. Inna lillahai wa inna illahi rajaeoon😓
