Israeli President defends bullied Palestinian Boy

George Amira is an 11 year old Palestinian* boy from Jaffa who recently made a video detailing the Bullying that he receives regularly, from people who perceive him to be effeminate.

Reuven Rivlin, the President of Israel, happened to see the video, and asked to meet George. Together, they made a video of their own.

I read on the Facebook feed of Rabbis for Human Rights that after George and President Rivlin made the video at least some of George's classmates apologized to him and made their own video.


*I refer to George as a Palestinian, because my initial source for this story, the Facebook feed of Rabbis for Human Rights did so. Various media sources call him Palestinian or Israeli. In any case, George is of Arab ethnicity.
