What is significant about this story is the contradictions many Palestinians are living through. Meaning that some Palestinians may be forced to work in settlements or Israel, for a good end, in order to generate income to raise a family(s) or to continue their education, etc.... This Israeli occupation has deformed the lives of Palestinians for generations to come. But Palestinians and Israelis were and are subject to the consequences of the Israeli occupation. Ironically, Israel created Hamas as an opposing force to Fatah, and guess what? It turned against its own creator to become a true force in Palestinian resistance, politics and community. Not only that, but after the Palestinian Authority (PA) subjugated Hamas before the 2nd Intifada, Israel had viciously targeted the PA military establishment's personnel and infrastructure, thus, weakening it and humilitaing and rendering it obsolete. Israel and the US wnat the PA to reign in militants and uproot the "terrorist" infrastructure?!!!! Israel with its might and with its continuous incurssions, couldn't do that, so why are they demanding it from the erroding PA forces. Both our people can ramble on and on about the oppresion of the occupation and terrorism, but one thing is for sure, a third Intifada will erupt unless the Palestinians are given their independence, and a viable Palestinian state that is geographically linked. Live and let the Palestinians live.
