    It seems like the converts were not actually forced to convert! What happens is the Christian families don't accept the decision of the converts, because religion in Palestine is not a mere belief, but - as the author mentioned- a badge of membership, and has to do with family pride. If these 3000 Christians believe that there is a regional conspiracy to get them out Gaza then I think they're a bit delusional. I am an Atheist and I don’t give a damn about defending any religion but I think this story is merely an attempt to demonize Hamas (not that I like Hamas, but I know bullshit when I see it). When you say (there must be a reason why this woman leaves her husband in a Palestinian society), I hope you realize that this applies to every society and has nothing to do with Palestinian society. As for the fact that you consider yourself to be "glad to be lucky enough to live in Israel", that's just sad. I hope you understand that religious tendencies in Palestine are only a reaction to Israel's fascism. In Gaza after the war, if you don’t believe in a divine entity that will restore justice and give your life meaning beyond the classical Greek tragedy that we live in today, then the costs of staying alive will outweigh the benefits. This is all because of your beloved Israel. Shame on all those who settle for injustice and hide behind the unjust!
