    West bank is cut into pieces by walls and colonies, checkpoints controlled by Israeli Army. Settlers are continuously attacking Palestinian farmers with the silent agreement of the Israeli Army, they never go to trial. But when a Palestinian is resisting (meaning that he oppened a syndicate in the university, or through a stone in the street), he's brought to jail where torture is still on. They can't dig a wheel or even open a shop without authorization from the Israeli Army, Only 60% of West Bank is under Palestinian control, and even not fully. Check out B'tselem, Kav Loaved and other organizations. and move your ass to West Bank before saying that they are flourishing and wealthy. you don't know the first thing about life on the other side of the wall, that's why you think there is no problem with it. just go check out. people do live like dogs there and you're responsible. It's even worse in Gaza. So don't get surprised to get some rockets on the nose sometimes. But remember that you bomb hospitals and schools while rockets hardly reach their target as they lack of the technology to shoot properly. but you'll say i'm telling bullshit because you we brainwashed in lovely schools and in the army and because censorship does exist in Israel... so come to see yourself. and if you want a guide, let me know!
