Lost in the conflict within Israel is the continual death encountered by children. Yes, sometimes, not too often, a Jewish Israel child winds up dead, but just about each week some Palestinian child will never return home from her interaction with Israeli soldiers. A 13 year old Palestinian girl left home telling her family that she wanted to do something and wound up trying to stab someone at a Jewish settlement on the West Bank. She was shot to death.
Once upon a time little girls played games with other little girls or sat together giggling and pretending they were grown up girls. Today, death awaits so many children in Palestine or in the West Bank which should belong to Palestine. As a Jew, I am left with sorrow that some how, in some way, the rights of Palestinians could be respected without anyone dying.
