The sense of freedom, is not just about drawing barriers and suppressing the movement . it is about that feeling of living as a free human being. Israel never seized to be less than a force of occupation an oppression and suppression that is injected in every behavior. Racism, discrimination, and murder.

Today, thirty years after our first intifada, it is not a coincidence that we are going back to square zero in this conflict. If…
