    Bullshit, Nira Mashriki There is nothing balanced between an occupier and the occupied. You need to make a couple of visitis to the territories and see for your self and read these two reports by doctors who visited the territories: Dr, Derek Summerfield the British Medical Journal October, '04 . "Last year a UN rapportaur concluded that Gaza and the West bank were 'on the brink of a humanitarian castrophe'.The World Bank estimates that that 60% of the population are subsisting at poverty (under $2 dollars a day), a tripling in only three years. Half a million people are now completely dependent upon food aid, and Amnesty Int'l has expressed concern that the Israeli army has been hampering distribution in Gaza. Over half the households are eating only one meal a day, A study by John Hopkins University and Al Quds universities found that 20% of the children under the age of 5 years old were anemic, 9,3% were acutely malnourished, and a further 13,2% were chronically malnourished. This doctor I met on a professional visit ... pointed to a rising prevalence of anemia in pregnant women and low birth weights." The following is by Dr. Alice Rothchild who led a Jewish -Americal medical group: "We witnessed the devastating consequences for the civilian population of years of Israeli operations. The checkpoints, closures and the severe restriction on movement and economic activity have contributed to rising unemployment, poverty accompanied by usually high rates of infant mortality, acute and chronic malnutrition and inadequate outpatient and hospital services" Her full report can be read at http://www.vopj.org/conflict22.htm Dutch
