Hyer's Highlights: Israel / Gaza Border Conflict

Listener Oliver feels that Israel has done a disservice to itself by using live ammunition against protesters.

Hyer's Highlights: Israel / Gaza Border Conflict

Clashes on the border of Gaza and Israel have resulted in the deaths of 62 Palestinians at the hands of the Israeli army, with 1000's more injured.

The number of casualties instigated international outrage, with the United Nations declaring that Israel had used disproportionate and excessive force.

On Benji Hyer's Sunday radio show he asked whether this practice is fair, or if the public outcry was justified. In response, listener Paige argued passionately that “being slightly larger” isn’t always a life choice, and therefore she and others should not have to pay more money for the same clothes.
