I en artikel om Gilad Shalits frisläppande glimtar grundorsaken i mellanösternkonflikten fram. Från San Fransisco Chronicle:
Another freed prisoner, Wafa al-Biss, a 26-year-old woman, was arrested in 2005 and sentenced to 12 years for trying to detonate explosives hidden in her underwear as she approached Gaza’s Erez crossing into Israel.
She had been given a permit by Israel to leave Gaza for treatment at an Israeli hospital for burns she sustained in an accident in her home in Gaza.
She told well-wishers, including children from the neighborhood, that Palestinians should follow in her footsteps.
Wafa al-Bliss erbjöds behandling i Israel. Som tack försökte hon mörda de som visade henne medmänsklighet. Nu tas hon emot som hjältinna och förebild.
