Gaza mortar shells target Israeli forces searching for Hamas tunnels; Israel responds with airstrike, tank fire and declares border area a closed military zone; Hamas evacuates two schools as a precautionary measure.21:44 04.05.16 | 4 comments
One recurrent mistake is to think that Palestinians, or Israelis for that matter, are any different from other folks. Wars and civil wars defined all borders of empires, and all nation states of today. The American civil war (1861?1865)between "North" and South" in which 1 million young men were slaughtered on the battle field. A normal Palestinian society or state takes time to evolve.
