    I am pleased that you have read about the Holocaust,but I get the feeling that the reality of what happened then & what happens today is the middle east has become all one & the same to you.When you write about what Israelis do to their neighbors,you seem to imply their actions happen in a vacum.Cast Lead was the result of years of endless Hamas rockets aimed at Israeli civilians.Where is your recognition of that?Civilan suffering in Gaza was the direct result of the terrorism originating from there & frankly the public support for the rocketing.In comparison,there was no invasion into the West Bank because there is no terrorism originating from there.In response to that,the Israelis have reduced their presence,removed security roadblocks no longer deemed necessary & the West Bankers are not only free of Israeli military action,but enjoying a significant economic revival at a time when the world-wide economic situation is so bleak.You seem to have missed that situation
