We're sorry about your son, but there are well over 11,000 Palestinian political prisoners currently in Israeli jails being held, and hundreds of them are women and children. In addition, even though people think it was only a new and recent thing, NGOs like Amnesty International, UNICEF and Human Rights watch have been noting the humanitarian crisis in Gaza for over three years now! It's time to admit that a people HAVE BEEN and ARE BEING collectively punished. That would be a step in the right direction. Some of Israel's actions don't look like defense, they look like Apartheid. That is what the world sees and wishes the Israelis would see as well.
