The Palestinians have fired about 600 rockets into Israel this year, and when Israel has had it up to here and retaliates, all of a sudden the students start screaming poor little me.
The reason Amani Hamed’s friends don’t hear about Palestinians being killed is that not until Israel has retaliated are they killed.
As for the statement about the size of Israel’s military and Israel being oppressed, what would they think if rockets were fired into the United States from Canada to the tune of 600 rockets per year?
As far as the Palestinians returning to their homeland, they had the chance to stay after Israel became a state in 1948, and they chose not to. They had a chance to have 97 percent of the territory they wanted and turned it down.
There comes a time in the life of a country where you have to defend your country and the lives of its citizens.
