Humanize PalestineHumanize Palestine --Humanize Palestine was launched as a response to the brutal murder of Mohammad Abu Khdeir on July 2, 2014. After three Israeli youth went missing, a group of Israeli teenagers stopped Mohammad Abu Khdeir and pretended to ask him for directions. They kidnapped him, forced him into a car and burned him to death. This incident took place in the Beit Hanina/Shuafat neighborhood of Al-Quds (Jerusalem). After this story was released, images of Mohammad Abu Khdeir’s body at his funeral circulated. Why is it that when an Israeli goes missing or is killed, the media presents images of them from a happier time? They are usually smiling in these images or posing next to their family and friends. This helps create empathy in our hearts and connect with the person in the image on a deeper, more personal level. But when a Palestinian child is killed, images of their burned and mutilated bodies is circulated, and we immediately connect brown and Palestinian bodies with death and disposability. That person is stripped away from an identity, a family and loved ones, and a story. Humanize Palestine attempts to honor the deceased as martyrs by bringing them back to life through their pictures, stories, art, and poetry. Humanize Palestine reminds us, that contrary to Western bias, a Palestinian life is no less valuable than the life of another, by giving the life the respect and dignity that it deserves.dn 27/7/2014
