Resources on Palestinian Human Rights

The United States provides nearly $4 billion per year in foreign aid to Israel, which has militarily occupied the West Bank and Gaza since 1967. And yet, few Americans know about the harsh economic, political, and human rights conditions under which Palestinians live. The following Teach Ins, Academic Lectures, Short Videos, and Resources offer insightful analysis and often ignored facts about the realities facing Palestinians living under a brutal decades-long Israeli occupation.
