    This article has been very detailed as to the state of the Palestinian's economy in the Gaza Strip. I cannot say that I agree with the anti-Israeli sentiment of the writer, however. People will constantly line up in any way possible to down the Israeli state and bolster the worldwide pity of the Palestinians. I simply have one question... If the conditions are so bad living under the government of Israeli in the lands which it was awarded, why don't the Palestinians move elsewhere in the region? Israel is an incredibly small territory surrounded by various Arab states. Are these neighboring Arab states too unkind and indifferent to allow moving Palestinians an opportunity for livelihood within their borders? Wouldn't they be happier under an Arabic countries laws and customs? It simply makes sense to me that if you do not enjoy where you live or are not prospering there, you move somewhere else. Instead they remain, as a thorn in Israel's side, and responsible for their own situation.
