Obama Education Secretary denounces violence by Palestinian children facing strikes in Gaza – fr


Former Education Secretary Arne Duncan denounced the violence Palestinian children in Gaza face on Twitter on Saturday.

Duncan, who was head of the Education Ministry from 2009 to 2016 under President Obama, shared a video on Twitter of a 10-year-old Palestinian woman in Gaza crying over rocket attacks that left a building in rubble behind it. “Why do we deserve this, what have we done for it? The girl asked. She said her parents told her, “They just hate us, they just don’t like us because we are Muslims. ”

“Children around the world, and right here in our country – including in south and west Chicago – live with an unimaginable level of fear and trauma from violence every day,” Duncan wrote on Twitter. “They feel that nobody cares. It’s never, never fair, and it’s never, never their fault. ”
