Palestinians bring plight of threatened village to US

Palestinian Fatma Nawajaa (L), from the village of Susiya, with her son, nephew and another Palestinian family, stands outside the US Senate Dirksen office building in Washington on September 28, 2015Six Palestinians came to Washington to secure support against Israeli plans to raze their tiny West Bank village of Susiya, and at the last minute found assistance from US Senator Dianne Feinstein. The hamlet, which has already been torn down before and mainly consists of tents and makeshift structures for homes, is among a number of communities threatened with demolition by the Israeli army and has become a symbol of the occupation of the West Bank. For Susiya’s proponents, any gesture or public recognition, regardless of how small, by an elected member of the US Congress is a boost they can use as leverage in pressuring Israel’s authorities.
