This short item from the Associated Press which appeared in The New York Times and Fox News speaks volumes about what Israel has become. I do not know if it is completely or even partially accurate. However, it is here in the Times and even if this particular event never happened as reported by Mr. Nabhani, it reflects how many people correctly view the “Jewish State.”
How sad, how horrible, how true?
Gaza: Israeli Forces Kill Palestinian Man

A Palestinian in the Gaza Strip who died early Monday after he was shot by Israeli forces as he approached the border fence with Israel was mentally ill, his family said. Israeli forces shot the man, Ahmad Nabhani, 23, as he crawled toward the border on Sunday evening, partly concealed in a dried river bed, an Israeli military spokeswoman said. She said he ignored several warnings to stop. Mr. Nabhani later died of his wounds. “He was sick, he had a mental illness,” said Mr. Nabhani’s brother, Hazem, 27. He said his brother was being heavily medicated for depression and had approached the border fence three times previously. Each time, Israeli forces handed him back to Palestinian authorities, his brother said. “My brother didn’t understand anything,” he said. “Sometimes you’d speak to him and he wouldn’t understand. It is like he wasn’t there.”
