If only he had said one word of Hebrew, he would still be alive

This is not a deep political point. Its nothing more than a simple comment about militarism and racism. Yesterday, an Israeli mental patient was shot dead by Israeli soldiers near the Erez crossing with Gaza after he tried to climb the fence into Gaza. Yes, the symbolism really is that ironic: a Jewish mental patient was trying to break into the biggest prison on earth.

Today, the Israeli official in charge of the crossing had this to say:

“If he had said just one word in Hebrew, all of this could have ended differently.”
