    They didn't want us to speak to ordinary people... Really... quelle surprise and why would that be... exactly. What was Hamas afraid of... after all, these activists didn't come to Gaza to expose corruption or injustice. They came with good will and Palestinian aspiration in mind. They wanted to demonstrate that the Israeli siege was the root cause of the suffering. Something, Amira Hass has devoted a good part of her journalistic life. So what morbid tales would these ordinary people tell... anyway. You know... anyone reading this sophomoric attempt at reportage, can't help but notice that Ms. Hass has no ability what so-ever to decode the larger context. The simple fact that Hamas and the society it stands for... must be first be dragged, while screaming and convulsing into the 21st century.
