Israelis and Palestinians both guilty of incitement
— The Globe and Mail
These are dark days in Israel and the Palestinian community. People on both sides are furious about brutal acts perpetrated by the other side and fearful of what will come next. Those in mixed communities such as Jerusalem are bolting their doors and keeping their teenage children off the streets.
In southern Israel, rockets are once again flying and people are sleeping in shelters; while, in Gaza, people wish they had such shelters as they look out at the growing number of Israeli troops and tanks pointed toward them.
