Israel isn't punishing anybody for anything but defending itself from relentless violence. If the Palestinian leaders through the years, including Abbas, had just once agreed to any of the many offers of a state in exchange for peace, all would be well. It's only because fools like Abbas continue to refuse to make peace that the occupation has to, repeat, has to be maintained. He knows this very well but prefers to play victim.
