    You don't know what Nazi collective punishimet was. In 1942, a high ranking officer named Heydrich was killed in Czechoslovakia. Hitler ordered the small Czech mining village of Lidice to be liquidated. All 172 men and boys over age 16 in the village were shot while the women were deported to Ravensbrück concentration camp.The village of Lidice was then destroyed building by building with explosives. Obviously, that's not what's going on in Gaza, and just as obviously, you are trying to delegitimze Israel by using a rubbery slogan you don't understand to say Israel is like the Nazis. Gaza is under a blockade that is not much different in principle from the blockade imposed on the South in the U.S. Civil War. There is a Gazan on this board who has no use for Hamas and who is suffering along with his family because Hamas control of Gaza. What in the real world is he and those like him supposed to do? What can Israel do to help them get rid of Hamas? What can Abbas do to that end. How do you eradicate a cancer like Hamas without killing the patient? These are real questions, and superficial sloganeering manufacturing fake bad guys does nothing to anwer the question.
