OP, I can't help but feel it's a little odd that no one was hurt, but at the same time I wouldn't be surprised if it is a genuine attack. There are
people of palestinian decent in West Bank, as well as in other parts of Israel. Not to mention Muslims are everywhere and we know that they are
genuinely upset by the events that took place. Not that being a Muslim means they would do this, just that with such grotesque acts going on, someone
is going to be upset enough to act out. I wouldn't be surprised if we see more of these attacks in the coming days. Whether they be a ploy by Israel
to gather support by it's people for a ground offensive, or those attempting to strike back at Israel for the acts they are committing.
I have to admit, I came into the event with shock but tried to remain biased, seeing things from both sides. I would be upset if someone was shooting
missiles at me as well, and would hope something would be done. How ever, since the events began I've learned more and more about the history of the
area, as well as the drone strike against the Hamas leader during an unofficial cease fire.
IT seems those supporting Israel try to bring up the fact Hamas has terrorized the area for years, how ever Israel has done the same to Gaza, they
have been under a blockade for the last 7 years. Don't have enough of the basic needs, no jobs. It's a desperate place to live. Not to mention the
Palestine casualties rise every day. It's been a week and it's well over a hundred dead, with more than half being civilians, a quarter or more being
children. I just can't support them, I'm upset with both sides for their acts but I can understand the palestine side, and I feel I would likely try
to fight for my freedom as well.
