Who is David and who is Goliath in this photo?


Is this a tough question for you?
As a former Israeli government press adviser put it, in a wonderful bit of unintentional irony, "When you have a Palestinian kid facing an Israeli tank, how do you explain that the tank is actually David and the kid is Goliath?"

The answer is easy: The child is not Goliath. No child facing a tank; no civilian facing an army; no society so imprisoned facing their suppressors should ever be considered the aggressor.
The the very idea is disingenuous if not disgraceful.
