    For a long time now, Israel operates on the principle of, do unto others what others have done to you. One would think that the progressive slide toward fascism in 1930's Germany and subsequent holocaust would make the following generations of Jews more sensitive to others in their plight. Instead, we see the same slide toward fascism in Israel. Gaza as the Warsaw Ghetto, and people being arrested trying to bring food and medicine to the caged, show a very clear picture to the rest of the world as to what Israel's real values are. The argument that there are far worse human abuse violators in the world is really moot. Yes, there are worse, but none claims to be a moral ethical democratic country. Israel is the only 'democracy' that adopts the tactics of brutal third world dictatorships. It would be far better for the peace and security of Israel if they would open the cage and let the real humanitarians take care of the Palestinians, instead of blockading and arresting them.
