"What Mark DOESN`T discuss is if this method of holding the civilian population responsible for what happens on its turf. . . " - Yirz Israel is the occupying power in Gaza by it's own demand. Thus to hold the citizens of Gaza hostage and punish them collectively for the failure of Israel to enforce it's own regulations in Gaza constitutes a war crime. I understand what you are Yirz, the same kind of guy who committed attrocities for Hitler. And, alas, Israel has chosen to make itself no different than the kind of guys who stuffed Jewish children (collective punishment) into gas chambers. You have proven to the world what you are Yirz. A war criminal and a monster.
