Israel: ‘We Don't Hate You’

Allison Kaplan Sommer has a message to get across: Israel does not hate its enemies nor is it trying to exact revenge. “If we’re bombing them, we must hate them, right? Wrong. I’ve seen a lot of emotions over the past week, worry, fear, frustration, depression, and yes, maybe some anger directed at Hamas and those who elected them who continue to choose war and conflict instead of peace and prosperity. But hate? None. Not a bit. Not at all. Not even from people in Sderot, Ashdod, Ashkelon, Beersheva and environs who are getting fired at.”

    strange what you say maya..
    i can understand worry, fear, frustration but don’t tell us there is no hate !
    Do you really want us to believe you don’t hate Palestinians !!

    I read that all along 2008 around 40 Israelis and tourists were killed bye missiles which is a great loss i can understand. But tell, killing 500 people in just several days, will it be the solution ?? I bet rockets won’t stop in 2009.

    I guess it’s my first time to see someone attacks and pretends and wants to convince the world that he is the victim. The bare truth is you are attacking Gaza for no good reason.
