Mark says that Israel is "occupying" Gaza and therefore has no right to hold its citizens responsible for the terrorism of a few. Not correct! Israel is NOT in Gaza anymore and ONLY goes in because the locals are not preventing rockets from being launched from their territory. Furthermore, West Bank Palestinians ARE preventing extremists from launching rockets from their turf so if this is NOT being done in Gaza it would seem that this is an indication of popular acceptance. As for Marks accusation that I'm a war criminal and a monster just because we disagree on this matter turns the dialogue into a one of name calling rather than intelligent discourse. I usually enjoy reading Marks incisive comments, but alas he does not accord me the same courtesy of treating me as a legitimate interlocutor. And Mark, if you are reading this, next time please try and spell my name correctly. Thank You!
