    What has happened to the small stores around the world? Most have been dwarfed by the Walmarts and other such dynasties. All thats left is a few niche' stores with some unique products.People working 23 hours a day and making less on average than a postman. If you look closely at Hamas and Fatah you will see that there ARE strings attached and the Puppeteers of Riyadh and Teheran are pulling them.In turn the puppeteers could have strings attached too,from Washington,Moscow and Beijing. This is the Globalism of politics.So Hamas and Fatah and to a great extent Israel are puppets of the bigger picture. So its almost useless talking about these skirmishes at an entity in themselves.Yes there are local decisions but I can assure you that the decision to take both Shalit and the two soldiers on the Lebanese border were decided elsewhere. Open up your lens and see the bigger picture. Hamas and Fatah are fighting such a proxy war.
