American beaten by Israelis to speak in this Saturday evening in San Diego
An Israeli police officer has been charged with the beating of Tariq Abu Khdeir, the Palestinian-American teenager, that was caught on tape. Khdeir was watching demonstrations in East Jerusalem when he was seized. The video shows him lying on the ground as the officers repeatedly beat him with batons. He was left with facial bruises and severely swollen eyes and lips. Tariq was a cousin of Mohammed Abu Khdeir, the Palestinian teen burned alive in a revenge attack for the killings of the three Israelis in the West Bank.
