    Look up confimration bias. It applies heavily to you. Speaking as someone who had met Baseem on several occasions and has been to the Bil'in protests many times, Baseem was a peaceful man who did not support violence at the protests. He was one of the organisers and as such, targetted for assassination. I have seen him telling young residents of Bil'in that rock throwing even at armoured invaders with guns is counter-productive. He was always an advocate of memorable and peaceful protest. Once he ran up and down the lines flying a kite to demonstrate that the Palestinians are, like the jews, a people of passion and joy and happiness. These are the only generalisations worth making. I speak from first hand knowledge here. You do not You should hang your head in shame.
