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.
