Israel is trying to protect itself
A glaring headline in large bold print stood out in the Nov. 11 edition of The Buffalo News. It said: “Israelis kill 4 Palestinians in Gaza,” and underneath in small print: “Missile strikes prompt attack.” It should have read: “Palestinian missile strike wounds Israeli soldiers” and then underneath in small print: “Israel fires back,” because that is the order in which it happened.
The spokesman for the terrorist organization Hamas texted a message to reporters that “targeting civilians is a dangerous escalation that cannot be tolerated.” The accompanying Associated Press photo of a Palestinian woman grieving at a hospital was heart-wrenching. It reminded me of the horrific scenes televised from Israel after young Arabs were used as suicide bombers in populated areas in order to kill as many Israeli citizens as possible.
