Words of the Week: Shoshanna Keats Jaskoll

“The public hears ‘blockade,’ but does not know (care?) that Israel expelled all 8,000+ Jews from Gaza in 2005 to give the Palestinians a chance for a state of their own. Instead, Hamas killed a few hundred Palestinian rivals, took the international money meant for infrastructure and prosperity, and instead of building a future for their people, built a jihad machine aimed at Israel. They shot rockets at Israeli civilians and kidnapped and killed soldiers. They’ve waged war against Israel ever since, with an entire generation of Israelis in the south growing up knowing exactly what the 15-second run for shelter means.”

    Thank you for printing this. Somehow this story has been transformed into a vile anti Israel narrative. It is so rare to see the truth in print.
