Queen Rania of Jordan on Israel: What people need to realize is that under the guise of the right to self-defense, we see atrocities. Yes, any country has the right to self-defense. But not in any way. Not war crimes. Not collective punishment. You see, 6 thousand civilians have already been killed. 2.4 thousand children. What kind of self-defense is this? We see massacres with precision weapons. So in these two weeks, we have witnessed the indiscriminate bombing of Gaza. Entire families are destroyed. Residential areas are razed. The targets were hospitals, schools, churches, mosques, doctors, journalists, and employees of United Nations missions. Is this self-defense? And why is it that every time Israel commits these atrocities, they are presented under the banner of self-defense, and when the violence comes from the Palestinians, it is immediately called terrorism? Is the word “terrorist” only applicable to Muslims and Arabs?
