All oppressors must condition themselves to believe that they are the good guys and therefore justified in doing unspeakable things to the bad guys. This is where the definition of the good guys should end. By definition good guys do not do unspeakable things to any one. The other reasoning is to spare the rod and spoil the child. The old way was to break the will of the child so that eventually he/she submits to the conditioning you want to impose on him/her. The Palestinians are neither the bad guys or children ( although the children are bearing the brunt of the rod). They are the inhabitants of the worlds largest open air prison who are being punished because their lands have been forcibly taken from them and they dare to protest. These are the rules of the powerful against the powerless.
