Since then, they were taught it. They were also taught that it is their duty is to “liberate Palestine” by killing […]

Four Palestinians were killed – including one who stabbed an Israeli police officer — and about 250 others were wounded in clashes with security forces as the fallout continued Friday over President Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as the Jewish state’s capital. Link: http://nyp.st/2ASYomS
