The Israeli government should be held accountable for murdering over 270 Palestinians in 24 hours, and then pointing the finger at Hamas saying it’s all their fault. Palestinians have been terrorized by Israel, and despite the whole world watching, the situation hasn’t changed.
Is it so shocking that Palestinian youth (“militants”) are still throwing rocks and shooting rockets at their oppressor?
The Israeli government continues to steal Palestinian land, build illegal concrete barrier walls with sniper towers, electronic fence sensors, trenches, razor wire and video surveillance cameras.
Armed guards along these militarized zones continue to indiscriminately kill innocent Palestinians. Israeli airstrikes and heavily fortified military tanks continue to annihilate men, women and children. But – ho-hum, no one is listening.
Hate causes victims to retaliate; it brings out the worst in otherwise intelligent people. Both sides are embroiled in hate and fueling the violence.
