Shot by their own side, healed by the enemy

In the Gaza Strip's Jab aliya refugee camp, Aref Suleiman was raised on Palestinian struggle against the Jewish state. Today he lies in an Israeli hospital bed, his body riddled with Palestinian bullets, his wounds tended daily by Israeli nurses.
For the 22-year-old Mr Suleiman, who was shot five times point blank by Hamas militants last month during a renewed bout of Palestinian infighting, this is not the Arab-Israeli conflict he learnt about as a child growing up in Gaza's desperate, rubbish-strewn alleys.
"Palestinians shoot me and Jews treat me," he laughs bitterly. "It was supposed to be different."

    The explanation of this is plain and simple. Muslims are barbarians bordering on sub-humans. The Israelis are compassionate and civilised. It doesn't take rocket science to figure this out.

    Yeah the Israelis are civilised people who took a land that didnt belong to them by force and now they forcing out the rightful people from their own country by restricting their jobs, money and food and to top it all bombing the whole region in the name of security for Israel (sound like civilised people to you?).
    What would all their military power do when the Hour strikes and they are standing before the Creator of the Heavens and the Earth???
