Mina Blackburn, an American Muslim of European descent says what’s happening in Gaza is genocide.

“The truth is that Palestinians are oppressed,” said Blackburn. “Gaza is an open-air prison.”

Israeli Deputy Consul General Alex Goldman-Shayman says that criticism shouldn’t be directed at Israel.

“We want to bring quiet to our civilians and I think it is right and the duty for each government to bring peace and security for the civilians,” said Goldman-Shayman.

Israel has been bombing Gaza locations to stop Hamas rocket attacks.
