From the Washington Post:
Fathi Harb wanted to commit suicide by soldier. So he went to a protest this spring along Gaza’s border, hoping Israeli snipers would shoot him, his grandfather recalled. When they didn’t, Harb, 22, tried again, returning to another protest soon after, and again he survived.
Then, last month, he set himself on fire on a busy street in Gaza City, later succumbing to his injuries.
“He called his father right before he did it and told him of his plans,” his grandfather Saeed said.
Harb had been chronically jobless. He shared a single apartment with 12 family members, including his pregnant wife. It was too hard, he told his father, explaining his wish to die.
The WaPo is still spinning this as if Gazans who want to commit suicide is Israel’s fault, rather than the responsibility of the terror group that runs their lives and of the other terror group in Ramallah that actively denies them fuel, medical supplies and electricity.
