David Nigel Braman -- you conveniently omit the context in which the Palestinians have committed their "crimes against the Jewish state." For nearly three years the Israelis have imposed a stranglehold on the enclave, snuffing out any hope for improvement in their lives. As such it is a provocative, violent act by a state that pays no heed to international law and the rights of non-Jews living in "Greater Israel." Moreover Israel carries out assasinations in Gaza whenever it wishes. The "crimes against the Jewish state" are admittedly feeble attempts to avenge the many wrongs done to the Gaza Palestinians. They do Israel little, if any, harm. Yet they are a reflection of the Palestinian hatred for its oppressor. And it is only getting worse, I am afraid.
