I'm imagining a potential reality where the arabs of Gaza had spent their money, time, and effort building hospitals instead of investing in gangs, guns, hatred, and corruption. For one thing, they would have had a 'state' by now if they showed the world they cared about life more than they hated Jews. For another, they could have cared for these poor individuals as part of their own humanity and decency.No one can honestly deny that enough human and financial capital has been diverted to hating Israel to build 10 high quality hospitals if that's what their priorities were. This example can be applied to many other areas - basic services, schools. Not everything is Israel's fault. Millions have flowed into Gaza and disappeared in the hands of corrupt haters. Is it wrong to expect other peoples and nations to provide decent and humane treatment to their own people? Are there no standards for other 'nations' of the world? Even a minimum standard?
