Israel's human rights violations in Palestine must be condemned, says New York Times columnist Michelle Alexander.

A New York Times article penned by Michelle Alexander and published on Sunday has slammed Israeli policies against Palestine.

"WE MUST CRY OUT FOR PALESTINIANS"

In the article "Time to break the silence on Palestine," civil rights lawyer and advocate Alexander urges the international community to speak courageously against the "grave injustice of our time," just like Martin Luther King Jr. did so against the war in Vietnam.

"If we are to honor King's message and not merely the man, we must condemn Israel's actions: unrelenting violations of international law, continued occupation of the West Bank, East Jerusalem, and Gaza, home demolitions and land confiscations," wrote Alexander.

"We must cry out at the treatment of Palestinians at checkpoints, the routine searches of their homes and restrictions on their movements, and the severely limited access to decent housing, schools, food, hospitals and water that many of them face."
