If YOU read talkback carefully, you'll find Chanah was criticising 'moron' Ann for bringing up the Palestinian issue and the right to return of Palestinian refugees when the article is clearly about healthcare. As for your comment: "It's historically true that those on the lower end of the Socio-Economic Scale usually have a shorter life span so it is the responsibility of the Government of Israel to bring up the standard or living.. But you and I both know that the likelyhood of that is zero." If they were in an Arab country it'd be a lot lower, so I think Israel's done a pretty good job, wouldn't you say? Why not take a look at the poorer back in good old Eirinn. And as for "Surly(your spelling)it is up to Hamas to be concerned about the life expectancy of his People. Hamas is down to one person?? Israel must have gaoled or assasinated all the others" Yeah right! Haven't you seen the armed gunmen parading in Gaza lately? They even show it on the pro-Pal BBC!
