    We have a situation where a normal Palestinian from Gaza will shot on site for approaching the border with Israel. He can't travel abroad. He is forced to live in a ghetto with little no chance for a better future....thousands upon thousands, dependent on foriegn aid because they can't build a port or an airport, live in freedom like any other "normal human being". This goes on for decade after decade... Meanwhile Israelis are protesting in the hundreds of thousands....over what? money, better housing? Nothing about the situation they imposed on Gaza? And when once in a great while we have an attack on Southern Israel like this......while being very sorry for the death of civillians, it is a very difficult thing to condemn....what other recourse do these people have, realistically? Make peace, have two free states, 1967 borders, then you will get all the condemnation and more when you are attacked. The dirty little secret Israelis ignore, is once you make peace based on justice, you won't be attacked any more.
