The devil has a face

August 31, 2012

 

Horrifying picture of Israeli settlers terrorising a Palestinian woman in East Jerusalem. Look particularly at the second settler from the right. Try to imagine what kind of hatred brought him to this woman’s home, just to frighten her, insult her, taunt her that she is now homeless because him or someone like him is now living in her family’s house.

 

The caption on the Wall Street Journal says

That does not look like an argument to me. It looks like an elderly woman, one whom we know has been kicked out of her home by a group of Israeli terrorists, trying to defend herself. She seems to be holding a garbage lid – not much of a shield in the front of so much hatred. State-sanctioned, police-enabled hatred.

    SHAME on them!! There is no excuse for this display of gleeful hate and insult. I’m sorry I wasn’t there to help her.😦
