    Almost every statement in this article only makes sense to those who are already part of the extreme Left. When Israel returned Sinai to Egypt, Israel also tried to return Gaza to Egypt, who refused to take it back. Under forced Israeli occupation, Gaza saw improvements in water, electricity, education and health. Israel offered several times to give Gaza to the PA as part of a settlement, but it fell through. Israel withdrew from Gaza in 2005, and only went back in after Hamas pushed out the PA President Abbas and his Fatah Party. If you look at your normal diet you probably eat no more than 97 different items. The 10,000 in a supermarket are many different brands of the same basic staples. My local Tesco has at least 100 varieties of coffee and tea, of which I use about three. President Abbas himself said the PA makes sure there is no food shortage and denied any suggestion of a humanitarian crisis. You suggest that if he were younger -- and by definition less experienced in the real world -- he would have joined the flotilla. That's the whole point -- he's no longer so young, naive, stupid and inexperienced as to be taken in by terrorist propaganda.
