I can understand Klein's point that Palestinians elected Hamas and Hamas fired rockets and it hurt Israeli civilians. There is a problem with that. Technically, the PLO won a larger percentage of the vote, but was disorganized and weak. I am sure you know why they were weak. Many people who voted for Hamas did so because the PLO was corrupt. It was not to end the peace process, and it's hypocritical of Israelis to mention Hamas when they voted for Ariel Sharon who was alleged to have been connected several massacres of Arabs. Hamas was willing to agree to firing no rockets if Israel would lift the blockade, allow more trucks in with food and that sort of thing. Barak refused to do so. If you say Hamas broke the ceasefire, Israel did as well, and it is allegedy that it was heavily broken on November 4th by Israel. Carter had the impression an increased number of food trucks. So did Hamas. It didn't happen. Civilians are dead on both sides because of both sides.
