When are friends a burden?

When they will likely, violently and soon die on you, a point one may infer from this report about a young Palestinian man living in Gaza:

Anees told us tonight that he has no longer wants to make new friends because so many of his have died. A new friend may die tomorrow or disappear. He knew Rachel Corrie and she was the main reason he learned English. Others told us Anees went under fire to help Tom Hurndall get to the hospital when he was shot by IDF snipers.
