“It would be… so easy… to hate”

Bassam Aramin is a Palestinian man who spent seven years in an Israeli jail for helping to plan an armed attack against Israeli soldiers.

His 10-year-old daughter was recently killed, apparently by a rubber bullet fired by an Israeli soldier.

Writing in the American Jewish publication The Forward, he doesn’t say what you might think he would say.

I wish there was a way of putting what’s in his heart into the hearts of millions of others in the region.

Update: As is so often the case in this conflict, the cause of death is in dispute.
