UNRWA: We're losing the next generation

Gaza kidsJohn Ging, the top UNRWA rep in Gaza, voiced this sensible opinion: poverty, border closures, and the recent Gaza operation have greatly radicalized Gaza’s youth, who make up two-thirds of its population. To expect them to live in peace with Israel is unrealistic.

What the UNRWA fellow does not understand is that a similar hatred has brewed on the other side of the border. Children in Sderot grew up without seeing peaceful life: for eight years, Palestinians shelled them and attacked with rockets.
