We remember Munthader el Zaidi. The one who expressed the outrage of all who stand against occupation and brutality.
Yesterday, he was sentenced. Sentenced by a court appointed by men under occupation.
Kicking off proceedings, the presiding judge Abdulemir Hassan al-Rubaie asked Zaidi whether he was innocent or guilty. “I am innocent,” came the reply from the 30-year-old reporter. “What I did was a natural response to the occupation.”
The monkey court sentenced Zaidi to 3 years in prison.
3 years in prison.
He honestly expressed our anger, our outrage. We need more expressions. More bravery. More honesty. More shoes to be thrown at all the occupiers and their supporters. Enough.
Rather than shaking their hands, inviting them to dinner, giving them tea, we should all be Muntadher el Zaidi.
