Gazastan, WestBankistan

Cliff May tears correspondent Laila El-Haddad a new one:

Ms. El-Haddad complains about the very real inconveniences that she and other Palestinians experience at border crossings between Gaza and Israel, as well as those imposed on Palestiians by Israel’s security barriers along the West Bank.

Nowhere in her essay does she mention the reason for these inconveniences. She writes not one word about terrorism, about suicide bombers who have crossed into Israeli communities to commit acts of mass murder. She has nothing to say about the violence that has been directed against Israelis for more than half a century.

Apparently, she believes the suffering of a Palestinian mother standing in line is infinitely greater than the suffering of an Israeli mother standing next to a grave.
