It's a hard concept to get... Killing people in some cultures isn't really all that wrong... What is happening ( really ) is Israel gradually tightening screws on those cultures with stronger and stronger message, sounds approximately like this "keep it to own family, pretty please." If it wasn't for some politicians - turn - emperors we would be probably fighting a little more now, but there would be a lot less talk about how to divide this and that. Believe me, unless we get ahold of those emperors we will soon be fighting wars nobody expected to find even a few years ago. As far as Hamas, they are way better than anyone could expect. Even Hanyah looks like he is jogging regularly. Why is he keeping Gilad? May be Mr. Schalit knows some magical aerobic technique to whittle tummy out.
