I agree. And I have had many Arab and Muslim friends in the past, but became increasingly uncomfortable the more they excused the violence Palestinians perpetrated against innocent Israeli civilians--the elderly, women, and children...families doing nothing more than celebrating a holiday dinner, or people simply eating at a restaurant. Neither do I feel comfortable with those who make excuses for Hamas or Hizbollah, both of which still call for Israel's destruction. And then they would claim that all they want is peace in the Middle East. On what terms and at whose expense? Truly hypocrisy.
