That argument goes both ways. Israelis have plenty of reason to hate Gazans. First of all, they elected a government pledged to the destruction of Israel, ALL of it. Second of all, a government in their name shot rockets at southern Israeli towns for eight years. Maybe you think that is insignificant, but try living under the constant threat of rocket bombardment for eight years. I know that during the Gulf War I was a basket case after two weeks of Scuds falling near my house. This conflict has TWO SIDES and there is SUFFERING on BOTH SIDES. I feel for the innocent children of Gaza but if Hamas really cared, they would, for starters, release Gilad Shalit and the blockade might just be lifted. But they don't care. And do you know why they don't? Because Gilad Shalit is the insurance of Hamas leaders that they themselves won't be harmed.
