    Dakkar, I believe you need to take off your own blinders and get the full perspective. What is the disruption daily to a bunch of school kids in Sderot from a few home- made Qassams rockets compared to the devastation an entire civilian population has had to endure living their lives under a belligerent Israeli Occupation as Dr. Alice Rothchild noted in her report from Gaza in 2005 from Gaza (see below )and now after a year and half of a devastation economic boycotts which has crippled their economy and a God damn awful wall that makes their ordinary lives almost intolerable as Jimmy Carter said in one of his conference on his latest book, Peace not Apartheid. So please stop making a mountain out of a molehill and the full perspective. Dutch P.S. Dr. Rothchild's Report from Gaza in 2005: "We witnessed the devastating consequences for the civilian population of years of Israeli military operations. The checkpoints, closures and the severe restriction on movement and economic activity have contributed to rising unemployment, poverty accompanied by unusually high rates of infant mortality, acute and chronic mal- nutrition and inadequate outpatient and hospital care. At the Gaza Community Mental Health Program, Dr. Eyad el Sarraj spoke of an entire population suffering from the symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety and depression, a consequence of high unemployment, extreme poverty and massive exposure to violence. A recent study by the program of 10- to 19-year-olds in Gaza found that two thirds have seen a friend or neighbor killed or wounded, more than one-third have been tear- gassed and 82 percent suffer from moderate to severe PTSD."
