    I was born in Germany in 1942 and grew up within the self inflicted poverty of the post-WWII-era here. At the age of 4, we lived at 800 calories per day, close to the starvation level. This was the situation for 100% of the whole nation of 60 million people, not just 7% or 13%. At the age of 6, all children needed nutrition from the US help program to be able to perform at school. I still remember the bad smelling soup which was our only warm meal per day. Whenever I see pictures of Palestine youths, e.g. throwing stones or protesting at destroyed houses, I'm surprised about the good color of their skin, their overall nutritional status, the quality of their clothes and the devices they own, such as bicycles. For an ethnic group which is collectively promoting racial hatred and the expulsion of a neighbouring state's population, without the power to implement such goals, this seems to be an exceptional solid quality of live overall.
