Kill a Palestinian every hour
Al-Hayat, London, June 21
There is a Facebook page supporting the killing of a Palestinian “terrorist” every hour until the return of three Israeli children who disappeared in the West Bank. Until the State of Palestine is established, every Palestinian is a freedom fighter, and all Israelis are potential or experienced terrorists, says writer Jihad al-Khazen. Hamas didn’t abduct the three boys – the policy of occupation, terrorism and murder did.I’ve spent decades of my life working in journalism; I learned from the masters of the British press that the defendant is referred to as the “allegedly accused” until a trial decides on transforming this title into a criminal.
