Palestinian Woman Injured By Rocket In Ashkelon: I Love Israel

Last week, one man was killed and two woman seriously injured after a rocket fired from Gaza scored a direct hit on an apartment building in Ashkelon. The man turned out to be 48-year-old Mahmoud Abu Asabeh, a palestinian man from Hebron who worked in Israel, while one of the women was a young palestinian from Bethlehem.

The woman has since been interviewed by Israeli TV. She describes being afraid to return to the PA since they suspect she cooperated with Israel and have threatened her and her family. At the same time, she makes it clear she loves Israel and wants to stay here.

One can be cynical and suggest she is just saying she loves Israel to avoid going back. But even if that was the case, she clearly is not afraid of the “big, bad Israelis”, and wants to live among us.
