Eyes of a dead man

Thanks to a recent post from Alia Yunis (www.aliayunis.com), we now know more about the nine “Islamist extremists” who were murdered by Israeli commandos when they stormed the  MV Mavi Marmara in international waters on May 31, 2010.

Ever wonder where the next generation of terrorists will come from?  Look into the faces of the wives and children and siblings and then ask yourselves how many millions more must hate us for all that we do and allow to be done…
