Even though the conflict in the Middle East is thousands of miles away, it is becoming a big concern for some folks who live in our region.
The headlines are nothing new for Huntington resident Michael Basha, but it is a concern. His mother lives in Israel near the Gaza border.
“The conflict, it has gone from year over year, over year for the same cause, which is a useless cause; there is nothing you can do other than truly send a strong message that says top messing with Israel. Because we keep our cool for so long, but when we lash out, you’re going to suffer,” Basha said.
The B’Nai Jacob Synagogue in Charleston hosted a program Sunday night where guest speaker Eric Trager and Congresswoman Shelley Moore Capito spoke about the Muslim Brotherhood.
Trager said the brotherhood is a political party that’s pro-Hamas, Israel’s nemesis in the recent conflict.
Capito said she is hopeful for a cease fire before ground troops are deployed.
Eyewitness News also spoke with a man who lives in Charleston, but is originally from Palestine. He said both sides are extremely stubborn and that Israel needs to think twice before bombing in civilian territory.
