Your astonishment over Israel and Egypt wanting to hurt gazans shows very little awareness of facts and most probable simple suffering from media education. With both borders closed off, the gazans now have to realize that only peaceful leadership not obsessing with Israel's destruction will bring normalcy to them. Any country's leadership whose sole infatuation is with Israel's demise cares nothing about rank and file gazans. Suffering Gazans bring pity from dupes who blame Israel and now Egypt. It is up to the people to disarm Hamas and become a normal, non-belligerant state and overnight, the mini nation will thrive with israel's help! But you know and I know, who has the bullets- and the backing from Iran and Syria. It will take courageous simple gazans to fight this scourge of arab terrorism and to try to create a normal life. Maybe in our lifetimes. If the rockets continue, Israel will be forced to attack, annex the land,get rid of evil Hamas&let Gaza grow naturally.
