There was an extra credit lecture on Jerusalem for my Islam class this past Thursday that I couldn’t attend because I had to work. Today in class our professor asked those of us who went to talk about what they learned and how it went. The lecturer talked about the ongoing conflict between the Israelis and the Palestinians and how Israeli children have to run to bomb shelters during their playtime because of the bombs. There was also a Palestinian speaker, but the original speaker defended Israeli actions by saying they were only in response to the Palestinians attacks. Right. Stealing people’s land, continued harassment and intimidation, unlawful arrests… Yeah. Totally unprovoked. Apparently the audience was largely ‘pro-Israel’ as well.

The international community must not become caught up in wishful thinking and be tempted to relax the pressure on Iran to stop its nuclear program.
We will not accept to be humiliated. We are all in a state of anger. We are abused by this attack.
We can not comment on these reports, but what we can say is that Israel is determined to prevent the transfer of chemical weapons or other game-changing weaponry by the Syrian regime to terrorists, specifically to Hezbollah in Lebanon.
