1. Gaza - WAKE UP
Sammy ,   Newcastle   (01.13.17)
Why is Gaza in such turmoil

Israel withdrew from Gaza August 2005

So in ELEVEN YEARS what has Hamas to show for it?

Hamas is in total control of Gaza so THERE IS NOBODY TO BLAME but themselves

It is THEY and THEY ALONE who have instigated wars and continue to plan THE NEXT ONE as if Gaza hasn’t suffered enough

THEY continue to openly promote the destruction of Israel as the FIRST and LAST goal – as if Gaza future and well being was unimportant

They have squandered BILLIONS in funding the lifestyles of the elite, more and more weapons while Gaza is left to ROT

And they think by perpetuating the lie that Israel is the enemy Gazans will all march like zombies to their tune?


2. Repeat after me
Sammy ,   Newcastle   (01.13.17)


Hamas must EARN Gazas trust NOT ABUSE IT
3. Lucky they elected their leaders carefully
MadDad ,   Johannesburg RSA   (01.13.17)
in a free and fair election.
Gaza is a democracy - so they should know who to blame.
4. Is this what he said?
Dan ,   Kfar Saba   (01.13.17)
"If the quiet on the border with the Gaza Strip continues, we will allow for a significant increase in humanitarian aid."

Did Liberman mean he would permit more aid to cross or that Israel would supply more aid?

One is a blockade, one is human aid.
5. Gaza is cursed as is Syria
BBB   (01.13.17)
and so many Muslim nations who make war against G-ds chosen people, Israel.
You'd think they'd have learned better by now but, no.
Some people never learn, they support terrorists and wonder what heir lives are compared to that of rats.
6. Where is the billions in aide gone?
Talula   (01.13.17)
This isn't our problem. I feel sorry for the average Palestinian who just wants to live. But they can't expect israel to support them. They have Hamas....the terrorists they voted in, remember?
7. No empathy from me or the Arab world
Shep Fargotstein ,   Memphis, TN - USA   (01.13.17)
It amazes me that the Palestinians think that they are making "progress" in their quest for a state with their maneuvering at the U.N. and other international forums. This dysfunction in Gaza illustrates for the millionth time how the Palestinians are INCAPABLE of managing a state - much less something as basic as electricity (especially with the billions in aid they receive).

As for the upcoming Paris summit: There is nothing this meeting can do to change the conflict. No amount of BDS or other "threats" will compell the Israeli people to committ national suicide by agreeing to ANY Palestinian state in the near future. The Palestinian people in both the West Bank and Gaza have been fed a steady diet of hate and incitement agaisnt Israel AND Jews for generations.

The only solution to this conflict is the obvious: Jordan is already 70% Palestinian. Jordan already IS THE Palestinian state - just change the name to Palestine.

The ugliness of war, terrorism and hate against Israel manifests itself in the poor and sometimes inhumane living conditions in Gaza---try living in peace with Israel and reap the guaranteed fruits of life and prosperity---you have to agree that at this point, Gaza needs a change of direction !!!!
