Even the Israeli daily newspaper Haaretz (May 15) was compelled to write that for a month and a half protests were carried out by “Palestinian people who were mostly unarmed and yet ended being killed by the dozens and wounded by the thousands.” Haaretz underscored the fact that throughout this period no soldier, no Israeli citizen, was wounded, but that Israel, meanwhile, multiplied “sniper fire against unarmed demonstrators, deadly fire.”
