Fired for a Facebook post, doctor seeks justice

As bombs rained down on the besieged Gaza Strip in May, countless individuals took to social media to express their outrage over the latest slew of atrocities perpetrated by the Israeli military, “the most moral army in the world.”

The cruelty of these strikes seemed to be surpassed only by the indiscriminate nature of infrastructure targeted: residential buildings, the only COVID-19 testing center, an Associated Press office.

Online outrage at what was happening was widespread. But in some cases, that outrage had material repercussions.

On 26 May, Dr. Fidaa Wishah, an accomplished Palestinian-American pediatrician from Gaza, now living in Phoenix, Arizona, took to her personal Facebook page to express her outrage at the injustice playing out in real time.
