    that the Palestinians must be trampled under the foot of their brutal occupier. It also means that the Palestinians were extremely passive until the first intifada in 1987 which was already 20 years into Israel's occupation and 39 years into being expulsed! The Palestinians should be admired for their patience because rising up to one's occupier has always been deemed legitimate. Even then, Palestinians were met with brutality when the uprising only consisted mainly of throwing stones. The first suicide bombing actually followed the massacre of 29 Muslim worshippers in Hebron in 1994, then 27 years into the Israeli occupation, for which the Palestinians were punished and the radical settlers were left there armed to the teeth and free to do what they wanted with impunity. On the contrary, the Palestinians have shown remarkable courage and endurance. The only question I can ask them is "What took you so long to finally rise up?"
