You are not an honest peace broker if you blame Israel. Where is Gilad Shalit? Why should Israel accept rockets for years? I for one am so relieved I don't hear bombs going off in Tel Aviv or Hadera, or Natanya, or Jerusalem, as in the past, so the Israeli government should be commended not condemned.Pity the poor children in Sderot who live in terror. Get rid of Hamas and maybe we can all live in peace.
