The mistake of too many Israelis and certainly that of those in control is the disregard of Palestinians as people, common ordinary individuals. "They", "Them", as applied to millions of individuals allows the IDF to practice the most unjustifiable of all crimes, to wit: collective punishment. Bye the bye, those here writing about "Israelis", without regard to those of us who against the government's actions, reeks of a very similar mind-set. Why don't the Palestinians get rid of the Hamas = Why do the Israelis do something about their right-wingers. Pity!
