Appalling scenes in Jerusalem at the funeral of Shireen Abu Akleh. As one post says, “a picture says a thousand words.”

I have never seen anything like this before. It is truly shocking.— Hala Gorani (@HalaGorani) May 13, 2022

Aerial view of Shireen Abu Akleh’s funeral procession in occupied Jerusalem. What a sight. Truly at a loss for words. Despite the full force of the Israeli police, they could not suppress or deter the people. Palestine bids farewell to a hero & icon 🕊 🇵🇸— Yumna (@yumna_patel) May 13, 2022

Today was my hardest reporting day yet. I was in Jenin & my friend; young, beautiful & inspiring was being buried in Jerusalem. To say that I believe Shireen is gone, I’d be lying. But the truth is she is.
Heavy. Heavy. Heavy.— Fatima AbdulKarim (@FatiabdulFatima) May 13, 2022

I’m sorry to go on about this, but it needs to be called out.

Look at the language used by New York Times, TIME, BBC News, and CBS News…

This is how they described an attack by Israeli forces, on the funeral of Palestinian journalist, who had been killed by those same forces.— Kamahl Santamaria (@KamahlOnTV) May 14, 2022
