    while i sympathize with your son for his injury and with you for your the inevitable worry you undergo; i'm also compelled to ask you if you ever stop to consider the daily worry of the palestinian parents who live under the whim of an occupying force known for its heavyhanded treatment of those whose land they occupy, and who have no qualms about shooting children. do you ever stop to ask yourself about the worry they feel every single day they send their children off to school...with the ever present possibility that an israeli patrol might fire off a few shots in passing and that their might never come home. do you ever consider the crippled and the maimed and the dead "innocents" among the palestinians; and the pain of their parents and husbands and wives? forgive me for saying, dr. gross, but this time around the real victims are not the jews or the israelis; nor have they been for a long time. and the numbers clearly reveal that truth. you do have my empathy... but what you endure does not even begin to compare to that which they are forced to endure on a daily basis.
