Hadeel was killed by an Israeli shell. She wasn't a suicide bomber. She wasn't near a fence trying to infiltrate the State. She wasn't launching a rocket. She was at home, probably watching TV or sleeping. She was 9 years old.
Hadeel is dead and except for her mother and father and brothers and sisters and a few neighbors, she will be forgotten. Another martyr. Her death will not stop the Israeli shelling, and it will not stop those who are launching the rockets. The occupiers and the "liberators" will carry on with their deadly game, their only concern is to score political points against their political rivals.
In this article (in Arabic) in the Palestinian daily Al Ayyam, Hani al Masri is calling on those launching the Quassam rockets to stop. He has more reverence for them than I do. But I'm happy he is subjecting their actions to some scrutiny. About time.
