Israeli violence against Palestinians largely ignored in US

Over the years, the US Congress has introduced and approved dozens of resolutions that condemn violence by Palestinians against Israelis. In sharp contrast, it has never approved a resolution that condemns violence by Israel’s government or its trigger-happy military, even though several have been introduced, including recently by Minnesota Rep. Betty McCollum.

McCollum in May introduced a bill prohibiting the allocation of US funds for any country that detains children, in the wake of a high-profile public debate in America about the detention of migrant children along the Mexican border. H.R. 2407 received very little media coverage even though it pointed out that far more children — more than 10,000 since 2000 — have been held in detention centers in Israel than have been detained along the US border with Mexico.
