LIVSHITS | Language as Violence. President Pollack: Acknowledge Both Sides.

The Israel-Hamas war has been raging for two weeks. For many, including myself, time has stopped. 

It is still early morning on Saturday, Oct. 7. The celebration of Sukkot extends through the night and into sunrise at the Nova music festival. Families in Israel set the table for Shemini Atzeret, the High Sabbath after Sukkot. In Palestine, many begin their Fajr prayer, their first prayer of the day. Children rush their breakfasts so that they can play with their friends. 

3,478 Palestinians have not yet been killed and 12,065 others have not yet been wounded. Across the divide, 1,400 Israelis have not yet been killed and 3,800 have not yet been injured.
