  1. This is even more reason why people should see Omar, particularly those in positions that make decisions allowing this Occupation to continue! Anyone who believes Israel are the moderates and innocent victims are full of bullshit! There are faults on both sides, probably more on Israel as some of them believe that Palestine should not exist.
    I find the irony with the Wall that was built by the Israelis that when the other wall came down in Germany the whole world was joyous as it ended the separation of the Germanys.
    So why didn’t the world condemn Israel for building their wall that divides people.??
