    Instead of judging them by your standards. When your economy is a disaster and the place is in chaos, you vote for whatever party that seems to put a hint of order and allows economic activity (even if it's trough illegal tunnels). You don't care about rockets, you care about being able to buy things for your family and rise out of poverty. Of course there are extremists but only considering them and ignoring the vast majority who only want peace and economic perspective is a major mistake. If your logic is pushed further, then we could say the Israels deserved the rockets because the country was created here, where other people were living (jews and arabs and more) before. So you see, you view is biased. More neutrality and common sense, please.
