Big Tech censors Palestinian advocacy around the world, while fostering surge in Jewish extremism in Israel

In a video widely shared on Twitter, Muna El-Kurd talks about the critical role social media plays in amassing international solidarity for the Palestinian cause.

“We feel social media is the only way left to get attention. Every post, tweet, video makes a difference. This is how we reach out to the masses of decent people and governments around the world” Muna El-Kurd said.

El-Kurd’s words were never more evident than on May 18 when Palestinians in the occupied territories, major Israeli cities, and diaspora communities around the world rallied together for a ‘general strike day’ to protest Israel’s rocket fire barrage of the Gaza strip that killed over 250 Palestinians sequestered in the coastal enclave. Protests in the UK, across Europe, and the US rallied thousands of demonstrators again on Saturday.

El-Kurd is a journalist and resident of the East Jerusalem neighborhood of Sheikh Jarrah where she has become an outspoken activist resisting the forced displacement efforts of her and several other Palestinian families by the settler organization Nahalat Shimon International.
