    Wow, you have a beautiful command of English. Can you tell me at what age you started using it in your daily life? It matters if you went to an English speaking school or not. About clans and family, in olden days the Sheriff was not too nearby and a person needed protection, provided by the family. Blood avenging and blood feuds also developed as means of protection. If you kill a member of my family, I will kill yours. I am sure you are aware. So of course Gaza is still in some need of clans, at least for people who have clans there. (Most Gazans are refugees.) I accept your notion that in prisons, gangs are formed as similar means of protection. This may have some effect in Gaza too. In any case, the state takes over over time. Fox will not accept the temporariness of this situation. He is not a thinker and what he sees is all there is (plus his imaginary explanation). If you enjoy this, feel easy. We all need some entertainment.
