US activist loses eye after being shot in face with tear gas canister

Emily is recovering at Hadassah Hospital after two surgeries Monday night. She lost her left eye, three metal plates were inserted into her head/face, and her jaw is wired shut. The bone surrounding her eye socket, cheekbone and jawbone are all fractured. Emily was standing peacefully during a demonstration at Qalandiya checkpoint Monday when Border Police fired a large number of tear gas canisters directly at the heads of Emily and another ISM activist.

Henochowicz is an art student at the prestigious Cooper Union, located in East Village, Manhattan.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So the IDF cavalierly shots out the eye of an American art student with a tear gas canister in a peaceful protest in the West Bank and what do we hear at the US State Department about this?!?

Absolute, complete, deafening silence.
