Palestinian children in Gaza have it rough. It is a heartbreaking situation for those kids who have had/will have damned all to say about anything
for some time to come...
On that we are agreed.
But this attempt to blame it all on Israel, or for that matter Hamas/Hezzbollah is silliness writ large. There's more than enough blame to go
Let's, just for the sake of argument (was going to say fun, but that's surely not the proper word to use), list those who do share some of the blame
for the situation as it stands in Gaza...
1) The Palestinians/The Israelis...really tough not to parcel out some of the blame to both these entities, isn't it?
2) Most every other nation in the region... Most, if not all of these nations have, at one time or another, supported the Palestinians in their
suicidal clash with the Israelis...Without shedding a bit of their blood in the process...letting the Palestinian try to do what they themselves in
numerous wars and clashes couldn't do...defeat the Israelis in a fair fight, or foul, for that matter... Cowards the lot of 'em...why the
Palestinians haven't figured this out is very strange.
3) The United States/Russia(soviet union)/Europe as a whole... Why leave these folks out of it? All three of these entities have contributed to the
rampant and long standing stupidity that is the ME conflict in one fashion or another...yep, another guilty party.
Who's innocent in this conflagration? Those kids caught in the middle on BOTH sides of this conflict.
OP, you got it right when you said these kids have, and are going to continue to, it rough. But when we try to parcel off the blame onto just one
side, we're missing the bigger picture. This is a human tragedy, much like Darfur. Uganda. Somalia. Nicaragua. ...and so many other places where
this sort of thing happens with such frequency.
Israel. Israel. Israel. Blame them. Blame Hamas. Blame who the Hell ever... Remember to save some of the blame for others who deserve some of the
Us. You, ;me, the neighbor...anyone and everyone who's looked the other way, and didn't raise our voices in protest and outrage...
Blame them, too.
