On November 14, 2012, Israel launched a bombardment in the Gaza Strip that lasted 8 days. Israeli officials said they were defending themselves against rocket fire from militants. As I sat in Gaza listening to the bombs falling all around, I heard President Obama on the radio tell the world that Israel had a right to defend herself.
Few people heard about the events that precipitated the rocket fire from the Gaza Strip. One of those events was the killing of a 13-year-old Palestinian boy playing soccer on November 8, 2012.
Who is defending? Who is the aggressor? President Obama and the Western media should not be so quick to judge.
