Non-Israelis Don’t Matter
Ad-Dustour, Amman, June 17

The IDF has been excessively raiding West Bank cities with unprecedented violence, says writer Munther al-Ainawi. It killed Ahmad Arafat Samada, 22, of Jelazoun refugee camp near Ramallah on Monday before dawn. Witnesses say the man was killed in cold blood with a bullet in the chest while watching the raid on his camp. Neighbors say he was wearing shorts and doing nothing but standing on his friends’ rooftop when the soldiers on the opposite rooftop killed him, also preventing him from getting treatment until some time had passed. Despite horrible crimes such as this one, no one appears bothered about the loss of life of a non-Israeli. Israel keeps forgetting that settlements in the West Bank are illegal according to the international law. It should bear responsibility for the fact that life under the occupation has become intolerable for the Palestinians.
