The Palestinian-Israeli Conflict

The Lebanese secular al Safeer newspaper.
The Lebanese leftist/ secular/communist Al Akhbar
Both called the individual who attacked the Jewish religious school in Jerusalem a “shaheed” or martyr.

When Arab seculars and communists, in addition to Islamists, call this person a martyr, it is further proof that the conflict is, not surprisingly, a political conflict between Jewish nationalism and Palestinian nationalism- not a religious conflict.

Neither party in this conflict is respecting international law. It's a fact regardless of who has the big guns- and it's Israel who has the big guns here.

Noncombatants continue to suffer.
