Title:Resumed Bombing of Gaza Will Be Crushing to Palestinian Students Shot in U.S., Says Victim's Mother

Support our work: We speak with the mother of Hisham Awartani, one of the three 20-year-old Palestinian college students who were shot last weekend in Burlington, Vermont, in a suspected hate crime. Elizabeth Price traveled from her home in Ramallah in the occupied West Bank to see her son, who is still hospitalized in Burlington. He was shot in the spine and, while in stable condition, now faces an immediate loss of mobility. Price shares how her son's "resilience" and "brotherhood" with his childhood best friends who are the other survivors of the shooting, Kinnan Abdalhamid and Tahseen Ali Ahmad, have been an integral part of his recovery. She also emphasizes that had Awartani been shot in Palestine, "he would have been dead in prison or thrown somewhere in a medical facility without the support to recover from this." We also discuss life under occupation in the West Bank, U.S. displays of solidarity with Palestinians, and the media narrative surrounding the shooter's motives. Of the three young men's commitment to highlighting the larger picture of Israeli oppression of Palestine, Price says that "the fact that the Israelis have started bombarding again in the Gaza Strip is something that will crush them more than their injuries."
