    Rather than defusing the situation of rockets hitting Israeli towns, Israel is adding fuel to the fire by not sending fuel, goods and cutting the electric. We are at the edge here in Gaza. Like the papers say the store shelves are emptying, including the pharmacy shelves. If things get worse the bulk of the hatred will swing away from Hamas and back to Israel. Palestinians are disenchanted with Hamas, but hold absolutely no love for the treatment dished out by Israel. Most Palestinians feel that Israel considers them to be the boil on Israel's bum that needs lancing. That Israel considers them to be sub-human and therefore can treat them like pests. Most Israelis that do enter Gaza are there for one purpose to destroy. None have come in with food and medical supplies and caring hearts. So the more Palestinians are degraded and cut off, the more they will hate. Soon the pot will boil over and it will be hot and messy.
