Henry Siegman, the former head of the American Jewish Congress and the Synagogue Council of America, discusses Israel’s assault on Gaza. Commenting on Israeli justifications for killing Palestinians in the name of self-defense, he responds: "If you don’t want to kill Palestinians, if that’s what pains you so much, you don’t have to kill them. You can give them their rights, and you can end the occupation. And to put the blame for the occupation and for the killing of innocents that we are seeing in Gaza now on the Palestinians…This is a great moral insult."
