Iran and the Arab world sacrifice Palestinians to fight Israel

Your editorial “Palestinian lives matter, except for Hamas” (October 17) rightly points out that Hamas is responsible for the deaths of Palestinian civilians. But the list of those who cruelly disregard Palestinian lives is much longer than Hamas alone.

This includes Iran, which is happy to sacrifice Palestinians in its war against Israel, as well as Iran’s proxies, Hezbollah and Palestinian Islamic Jihad; this includes the United Nations, whose schools and agencies for Palestinians have encouraged hatred against Israel and Jews for generations; it includes dozens of countries where tens of thousands of people gather to celebrate the deaths of civilians on both sides as a victory against Israel; and most importantly, this includes Egypt, which has the capacity to host refugees for the duration of this conflict and save many, many lives.
