Maria, who is a student at the University of Barcelona, shared a post on Instagram that criticized the international community for its silence in the face of the violence.
“How can we just sit and watch a massacre unfold on our TVs?” she wrote. “How many Palestinians have to die before we speak up? 10,000? 100,000? A million?”
The post also called for an end to the violence and for a peaceful resolution to the conflict.
“In the age of information, ignorance is a choice,” she wrote.
Maria’s post was met with mixed reactions. Some people praised her for speaking out, while others accused her of being biased.
The conflict between Israel and the Palestinians has escalated in recent weeks, with both sides exchanging airstrikes and rocket fire. The death toll has reached over 2,300, with the majority of the casualties being Palestinians.
The United Nations has called for an immediate ceasefire, but neither side has agreed to a truce.
About the conflict
The conflict between Israel and the Palestinians is a complex and long-standing one. It has its roots in the late 19th century, when the Zionist movement began to advocate for the establishment of a Jewish state in Palestine.
In 1948, the United Nations voted to partition Palestine into two states, one Arab and one Jewish. However, the Arab world rejected the plan, and Israel declared its independence.
This led to a war between Israel and the Arab states, which ended with Israel gaining control of much of Palestine.
Since then, there have been a number of wars and conflicts between Israel and the Palestinians. The most recent round of violence began on October 7, 2023, when Israel launched airstrikes on the Gaza Strip in response to rocket fire from Palestinian militants.***
