"About 10 percent of Palestinian children suffer permanent effects from malnutrition, according to a survey published Wednesday, a result of widespread poverty in the West Bank and Gaza.”

I wonder what would happen if Mexico drove into southern Texas and started bulldozing homes,...wait ... scratch that,... illegal settlements. You know because they were afraid for their own national security.
No I don't wonder. The people of Texas would rally together with guns, sticks, rocks, fireworks, bows, arrows, etc and fight back. So of course they are lobbing rockets at Israel, defending their homes in any way they can. Guerrilla warfare is never pretty.
Shame on Israel
People want me to feel sorry for the innocents that get hit in Israel by a stray rocket, and in a way I do, but at the same time Israel has no problem blowing up a home filled with children to get the single freedom fighter hidden among them.

Yeah -maybe you are right Israel shouldn't try and deter terrorism by holding the families responsible - perhaps they should just respond in kind, times a factor of ten say.
For every rocket aimed indiscriminately at civilians coming from gazza - the Israelis should just fire of a dozen rockets aimed somewhere at gazza city - that's fair isn't it!?
For suicide bombers they should just get a dozen pal prisoners and send them back over with a 'free rucksack' to take back!

A little noticed fact is that the standard of living in Gaza exceeds Egypt’s. And that is with the embargo on Gaza. Israel’s recent easing of the embargo is because of any humanitarian crisis, which does not exist in Gaza. It is due to the success of Hamas and allies in misrepresenting the situation as a humanitarian crisis, mis-characterizing Israel as an occupying power with responsibility to take care of the people of Gaza.
“The ability of this Goebbels-type propaganda to entrench a tremendous lie in the consciousness of the international community testifies to the continued vulnerability of naive Westerners to sophisticated psychological warfare and to the complicity of much of the Western press in this enterprise.” Continue reading on Examiner.com Gaza living standard exceeds Egypt's - New York Israel Conflict | Examiner.com www.examiner.com...
The most recent Human Development Report from the United Nations ranks the PA 102nd in terms of life expectancy, educational attainment and adjusted real income out of the 177 countries and territories in the world, placing it in the “medium human development” category along with most of the other Middle Eastern states (only the Gulf sheikdoms are ranked “high”).
The PA is ranked just 12 places below Jordan and one behind Iran; it is rated ahead of Syria (#105), Algeria (#108), Egypt (#120), and Morocco (#125).31

I do not live in Gaza. Applying the same principles to my country and state, these actions happen everyday. If the county wants to widen the road, they take your land. You may take the money they offer, or decline it and go to court. They will still take the land and you may never get any money because you declined payment. If , on a larger interest, the land zoning is changed in the interest of national security, you may not arbitrate in court, and may not be compensated, depending on circumstances. The only reason I know of Gaza, is, that land has been fought over for thousands of years, and is of global interest for Its location, and chosen by the God of Abraham.
“Arafat's Stash - The guy's a billionaire. Where does his money come from?”
"Experts estimate that the $1.3 billion Arafat controls could feed three million Palestinians for a year, buy 1,000 mobile intensive-care units, fund ten hospitals for a decade, and still leave $585 million to fund other social projects.”
According to the former head of Romanian intelligence, Lt. Gen. Ion Mihai Pacepa, one of the highest ranking communist defectors of all time, Rahman al-Qudwa became an important political ally of the communist bloc following the death of Egypt's president, Gamal Abdul Nasser, in 1970. Gen. Pacepa's account of Rahman's intimate relations with the communist bloc is related in a book entitled "Red Horizons." As it happens, Pacepa tells us that the communists trusted Rahman because he was a voracious homosexual.
This alone made him a workable Kremlin puppet, because once the Romanian intelligence services had taped Rahman's sex sessions with men and boys, he was completely in their hands. Afterwards, Rahman's friendship for the communist bloc would be permanent -- if he valued his growing popularity in the Arab world. Rahman al-Qudwa is better known as Yasser Arafat, the chairman of the PLO since 1968 and the president of the Palestinian Authority -- which is now at war with Israel. According to Gen. Pacepa's account, communist dictator Nicolae Ceausescu ordered his people to bring Arafat over to Romania. In late 1970 the chief of Romanian intelligence in Egypt, Gen. Constantine Munteanu, arrived in Bucharest with Arafat in tow. Munteanu had gathered an extensive file on Arafat, which characterized the PLO leader as "so much cleverness, blood, and filth all together in one man." Pacepa says that this was Munteanu's "standard definition of Arafat." Given Gen. Munteanu's extensive file, Arafat could not exactly refuse the communist's "friendly" overtures.
There is little question that Arafat is fanatically devoted to destroying Israel, and would sell his soul to the devil to gain his devilish ends. Therefore, a compact between Arafat and the Soviet Union via communist Romania was not something that violated any sacred Islamic rule in Arafat's heart. Arafat is no Moslem. His fanaticism is completely secular. But since he operates within the Islamic world, he must sometimes appear as a would-be Muslim liberator. (“Kremlin puppets and how they work,” J.R. Nyquist, October 19, 2000)
