Israel Bounces Check to Wounded ISM Activist

The Voice of Judea reports, “Israel bounced a check to a British man badly wounded by Israeli army fire. The Defense Ministry sent a check for nearly $14,000 to the family of Thomas Hurndall, 22, an activist with the pro-Palestinian International Solidarity Movement, who was shot in the head by an Israeli soldier in the Rafah refugee camp in Gaza last April, the Israeli daily Ha’aretz reported. The check was returned for insufficient funds. In a note with the check, Israel said the payment was for repatriating Hurndall, but did not constitute an admission of liability in the shooting.”

Late last month, Hurndall’s family announced his life support would be turned off. Despite whatever disagreement one may have over Hurndall’s positions, this is literally just adding insult to injury.
