    If you're born in Gaza youre trapped between the Israeli and Hamas fights. You're bullied by Hamas and you're bullied by IDF. The Gaza conflict is not about two sides. It's at least about three sides. The terrorists Hamas, the IDF and the civilians trapped in Gaza. Some would claim that the people of Gaza voted for Hamas and thats true as far as i know. But they refuse to see the reason behind it. Reasons as a corrupt Palestinean Administration in the West Bank that didnt bother much about their brothers and sisters in Gaza. The PA at west bank was undermined by Israel and weakened, which made it more or less powerless to Hamas. I wonder what the Israeli settlers at occupied Palestinean land would think if they had to endure what the people of Gaza are foreced to endure. What would the Israelis, UN, and the rest of the world say?
