Israelis don’t have any rightto deprive human rights
Does having been the sufferer of human rights abuses give one the fitting to rob others of theirs?
I fail to know why these liable for the emotional and bodily brutality at the moment being unleashed upon Palestinians within the Gaza and West Financial institution will not be being held accountable for his or her actions.

Why are members of 1 group exempt from being held accountable for crimes towards individuals and property, however not the opposite? Since when does having been an harmless sufferer of ruthless conduct give one a free cross to rob different harmless victims of their human rights?
