The question we have to ask is this: If anybody treated us like we're treating the people in Gaza, what would we do? We don't want to go there, do we? And because we don't, we make it our business not to see, hear or think about how we are treating t

To date, he remains unconscious at Tel Hashomer Hospital in Tel Aviv; his prospects for recovery are as of now unclear.
