Pro-Palestinian activists face hostility, fear and threats

On the day of Hamas’ Oct. 7 attack and the beginning of Israel’s ongoing retaliation, Reema Wahdan, a cancer researcher who for decades has advocated for the humanity of Palestinians, including as director of the Colorado Palestine Club, attended an emergency rally at the Colorado state Capitol, calling for de-escalation and “advocating peaceful security for both sides,” she told HuffPost.

A few days later, on Oct. 11, an unidentified person or persons called her family’s business several times, saying some variation of, “Death to Arabs, all Palestinians are going to die,” she said.

Two days later, Wahdan found a bullet lodged in her living room wall.

Wahdan said she’s been frustrated with the police response to the bullet; the Greenwood Village and Denver police departments, she said, have told her their investigation is inactive and that they believe the 9mm bullet lodged in her wall was actually fired 3 miles away from her house. The Denver Police Department referred HuffPost’s questions to the Greenwood Village Police Department, saying they were the lead investigating agency. A spokesperson for that department didn’t respond to emails.
