    Playing the card of the victims, while provoking Israel with terror respectively warlike activities (gun and bomb attacks against Israelis and launch of rockets and mortars) and blocking the negotiations throught their intransigent demands, appears to be convenient to the Palestinians. By doing so, the world can continue to give considerable finantial aid to both Palestinians authorities in Ramallah and Gaza and blames Israel when she responds to and defends herself against these provocations and attacks, crying (war) crime and humanitarian crisis, as many Israel-bashing postings from several countries here eloquently demonstrarte. This deliberate irrational (but rational in its cynical logic) game pusued by the Palestinians goes on and on, aiming at exacerbating the conflict rather than finding a possible negotiated solution, and will not end, even then not in the event that Israel would change her Gaza strategy, as the author of this piece may mistankenly hope in his wishful thinking
