Please help us thank the Globe and Mail's editors for publishing Saeed Teebi's op-ed about Gaza's unfair treatment in the media.
It is an important piece that sheds light on the media's double standard when it comes to Palestine and Palestinians.
Teebi's remark that "Palestinians here may only be treated in two ways: dehumanized and silenced" is both grim and potent. His words help cut through the barrage of anti-Palestinian racism filling the pages of Canada's newspapers in the form of "opinion."
Publishing Teebi also exemplifies the profound importance of making space for Palestinian voices and their perspectives. It is important to make this clear in order to promote future writing of this sort.
We invite you to point to Teebi's strongest arguments in your letter to the Globe and Mail and encourage the editors to consider his words as they continue their coverage of the Israeli attacks that are killing thousands of innocent Gazans.
