“If someone was sending rockets…” (Palestine)

Posted By on January 7, 2009

This afternoon I caught a bit of Obama’s statement on the fighting in Gaza.  I was only half watching, but I remember they’d just switched over from talking about a group of Palestinian children, who’d been killed by an Israeli rocket.

“If somebody was sending rockets into my house,” I heard him say, “Where my two daughters sleep at night, I’m going to do everything in my power to stop that.”

Like I said, I’d only been half watching, but my initial reaction was amazement. “Wow,” I thought, “I’ve never heard anyone put himself in the place of a Palestinian.”

The next sentence caught me up.  “And I’d expect the Israelis to do the same thing,” he continued.
