I now realize why people say things like this, they simply have not read the facts behind what is going on. 11,000+ Palestinian political prisoners exist in Israeli jails, many of them are women and children. Nearly all Palestinians are related to or know of someone who has been treated inhumanely and outside of international norms and laws by the Israeli Defense Force, in the eyes of many RESPECTED MEMBERS of the international community. Please at least look at least consider some sources other than the ones you regularly read.
