People act like its an issue of both sides occasionally indulging in murder of the other, but thats not it at all. AT ALL TIMES, no matter whether
rockets are being fired or not, the israeli occupation causes the death of palestinians and destruction of palestinian lives due to sanctions,
embargos, and blockades. So while the israeli's may have peace between the ineffectual homemade rocket attacks of the palestinians, the palestinians
are NEVER free from the death and destruction that results from israeli occupation. When no bombs are going off, the israeli's are free to live a
semi normal life, eat food, have electricity, go to work etc, ie a life relatively free from the influence and control of palestinians.
The palestinians, on the other hand, during ceasefires get to continue on their way to starvation, in a home with no electricity, watching their
friends and family waste away and die as a result of israeli action.
Ceasefire or not, the palestinians live in, and have suffered under for years, israeli blockade of food, medicine, energy, etc, and though you
may not know it, THESE ARE ACTS OF WAR!! Embargo's ARE acts of war. So the truth is that ceasefire means that israel can still wage war against
palestine, but the palestinians are just supposed to sit there and take it apparently.
The only people who could truly hold to such a notion are people who are completely ignorant of the situations the palestinians live under,
situations completely inflicted by the israelis.....most likely people who get all their news on this subject from the MSM.....so perhaps they are not
to blame for their ignorance, however, if all you read is one side of the story, and that side is israels, then please dont make a statement as if you
are some sort of educated authority. If you are inundated with the garbage media's 100 israel side stories, then read at least 50 palestinian side
stories before you make a judgement, and until then dont open your mouth to spread your ignorance.
