This email was sent me before the cease fire went into effect:
The situation here is really bad, the Israelis are pressuring us to be extremests by our thinking and actions. I am from those people who alaways wanted peace, but why would i want peace now with my killer. They are provoking us to change because they cant deal with peacful people. They like to deal with enemies because this is easier and it serves their purpose. My 6 year old was talking about the killing of little children, my son’s friend lost all his family and he is studying abroad. It is tough and hard. I guess for us as Palestinians, we should get used to being killed and treated like nothing.I don’t know how things will turn, but i know that Israelis are creating monsters by their deeds, demons that their bombs can’t handle.
All too often, we lose sight of the human element in such conflicts: miserable lives, crushed dreams, scarred memories, terrified children… Thank you for giving this guy a voice.

How about their Palestinian militant RADICALS stop firing rockets every day of the week into Israel? HAVE THERE NOT BEEN PALESTINIAN SUICIDE BOMBERS AS WELL? Feel very sorry for these innocent people, BUT it is THEIR OWN fellow citizens that are bringing this tragedy on them! Israel does not fire rockets at them day and night.Israel has turned their desert into a Garden and they work hard. Cannot say the same about Palestinians I am afraid. I have been to both Countries many times. Maybe if the Palestinians also start working instead of plotting, they will also be better off.
Do not pull a sleeping lion’s whiskers too much as it will bite back with serious consequences!
