The bombing of the Russian airliner reflects the long conflict between Islamic extremists and Egypt that has spread south to the coastal fantasy land.21:26 25.11.15 | 0 comments
As so often, Harel and Issacharoff's analysis shows the wilful blindness that is at the heart of Israel's problems today. They note that "1.4 million Palestinians live in the Gaza Strip, under strenuous economic conditions." And they note that there's not much for Gazans to look forward to, except jihad and martyrdom. Yet nowwhere do they point what is so bleedingly obvious to the rest of the world that Israel's decision to use collective punishment on Gazan civilians and keep them locked in a devastated ghetto might have something to do with continued hatred for Israel. Come on guys, earn your money. Analyse! I'm not saying there are easy solutions to Gaza, but at least point out that if you lock people, most of them innocent, in a room without telling them when, if ever, you'll let them out, they are liable to throw things at you. Come up with a new angle. How about opening the sea routes to Gaza and letting NATO navies search ships for arms on the way in?
