    Ron you wrote that the present day Palestinians are Jebusites. Actually you have absolutely no proof of this, which makes it nonsense. If you want to know where the present day Palestinians came from then you have to look at the history here since the destruction of the Temple. Over time folks have migrated to what is now called Israel from Egypt , many are in fact Christians who arrived from Europe and the region, there was also a large influx of Turks over a thousand year period, it is also interesting to see how many Pals have Syrian family names. Jebusites? that is your own invention. As for your take on "nearly genocide", there is no such thing. The blockade was a means to force Hamas into taking responsiblity for its ethos and its people. The blockade was humane, when you consider the other option, being war. Hopefully a man of peace such as yourself, will protest the rocket fire knowing full well that it will lead to another war!
