As with so many issues with the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, things are not black and white. The Abu heweila/Halbfinger article doesn’t shy away from hard facts.

The authors describe Israeli concerns about “the idea of swarming across the barrier, a mass of tens of thousands of people too numerous for Israeli soldiers to arrest or even to shoot.” They cite an Israeli colonel’s explanation that the protestors are “trying to infiltrate into Israel, damage our infrastructure and kill Israelis,” and that Hamas leader Ismail Radwan urged protestors not to fear death, but instead to welcome martyrdom. For additional context, let’s not forget that another leader, Yahya Sinwar, exhorted protestors on April 6th to “tear down the wall and tear out their [Israeli’s] hearts.” Read the full story.
