“If you’d only seen the bodies in the streets, if you only had seen the bodies. Little children without their shoes walking about the mayhem and crying.”
Israel is afraid of Palestinian memory, since it is the only facet of its war against the Palestinian people that it cannot fully control.

For years, social media has added a whole new stratum to this process of commemoration.
