    minding their own business, and we just started to attack them for the fun or hell of it. The trouble with Gideon is that he extracts these tragic and unfortunate incidents from the big picture. Imagine this Gideon: the Pals stop attacking Israel, sign a 400 year pact (I dare not expect more) to recognize Israel, sit down at the negotiating table to determine the borders of their future state, promote economic, agricultural, technological collaborations with Israel, etc, etc. Now wouldn?t that be more constructive. Naïve me, I thought that when we left Gaza they would begin building housing for the poor Pals who live in shacks, and instead they are firing Qassams at us. Hello! when will you begin to understand that you must ask responsibility from them as well. Oiy I don?t know why I bother to respond to your slanted articles!
