A world of hurt, hope

Joel Greenberg, Tribune foreign correspondent, Chicago Tribune

six-year-old Maria Aman from Gaza sat in a wheelchair in the Israeli 1st-grade class, a respirator tube in her neck and a bright pink school bag by her side, calling out the name of an animal drawn on the blackboard by a girl.

Adi Lustigman, one of the lawyers representing the Amans, said that Maria, her father and her brother should be granted permanent residence in Israel that would enable her to continue receiving the best care, funded by the Israeli government. "The state has to take responsibility for innocent people harmed by a targeted killing," Lustigman said.
