PTI Minister Blames Palestinians For Failing To ‘Defend Themselves’
Punjab Education Minister Murad Raas is being criticised on Twitter for what has been termed an ‘insensitive’ and ’embarrassing’ statement about the Palestine issue. The minister lashed out at Palestinians, saying that they have been using stones ‘for decades’, adding that Israel has been armed to the teeth.
“Where does all the Palestine support money go? Why can’t they buy a single gun to defend themselves,” he wrote on Twitter.
It is shocking to see that Israel has always been armed to the teeth but Palestinians are using Stones for decades. Where does all the Palestine support money go? Why can’t they buy a single gun to defend themselves. Being bombed and shot – 2021 still using stones???

The minister’s tweet led to an uproar with Twitterati asking him to educate himself on the issue instead of blaming the victim.
Another idiotic statement by a member of this filterless regime. Zero idea about the history of the struggle. It has roots in intifada. Ever heard of it? Hearts and minds against state terrorism. This is what makes it morally superior. Would you arm TLP too? Dimwit. https://t.co/GSoCCUe6OQ
