Justified slaughter?

  • March 7, 2024

My family and I visited the Holy Land more than 40 years ago and witnessed discriminatory treatment of Palestinians. After 75 years of such treatment, the Oct.7 event should not be a surprise.

On one occasion I expressed strong support for the Jews in Israel to our pastor. He said: “There are two sides to every issue. The Palestinians are badly treated.”
