    All the Israel bashers keep onthrowing the 35% unemployment rate in our faces. Not so long ago pre Hamas when the border was open thousands of Gazans worked in Israel. Nearly 100% of the co0nstruction trad in southern Israel was being performed by Gazans. The hotels were all staffed by Gazans. Whole families worked together at various jobs in the Israeli tourist industry. Most of the agriculteral workers were from Gaza. Why did this stop. Because the borders were clsoed due to the hundreds of Israelis killed and maimed by suicide bombers. By the attacks on the border posts. By the kidnapping of Shalit. By the fring of over 8,000 rockets into Israel. But of course none of our posters here will ever accept any responsibility for the actions of their Islamic terrorist friends. Its always the other persons fault. Why should we let you in to work if your goverment has sworn to kill us all. Why is the per capita rate of income only 60% of what it was in 1994. Because in 1994 there were no suicide bombers, no rockets and very little terrorism. When is the idea of cause and effext going to sink in with all you Hamas loving morons. You brought it on yourselves.
