They are Palestinians. They cannot be 'innocent' of anything. Because they are Palestinians, Arabs, they are 'Guilty' to most. They might not be 'guilty' as originally charged, but that does not matter. They are Palestinians, and Arabs, thus the MUST be guilty of something, anything. I lived as a white kid in the Segregated South. Whites were innocent until proven. Blacks were Guilty even if there was no evidence beyond a charge. That is how bigotry, how racism, how things work when the cards are stacked for one group and against another.
