Take a young man from Gaza living in the most horrendous conditions – most of it imposed by Israel – who straps dynamite around himself and then throws himself into a crowd of Israelis. I’ve never condoned or agreed with it, but at least it is understandable as the desperate wish of a human being who feels himself being crowded out of life and all of his surroundings, who sees his fellow citizens, other Palestinians, his parents, sisters, and brothers, suffering, being injured, or being killed. He wants to do something, to strike back.
