The article discusses the reactions of various Palestinian youths to the Israeli attack on Gaza on January 14, 2009, called "Operation Cast Lead." It mentions 15-year-old Amira Alqerem, a survivor who plans to sue the Israeli government at the International Criminal Court in Geneva. Also mentioned are the Palestinian students who passed their high school exams, despite the trauma of the attack and the lack of infrastructure which makes study and concentration difficult. The U.S. media is accused of not covering such cases in support of Israel.
