1. Gaza is more than merely a territorial outpost
Sammy ,   Newcastle   (03.27.18)
of a Palestinian state

It is its very EPICENTRE

With a stunning coastline and vast tourist potential, rich in offshore gas and oil, opportunities for ports and industrial desalination, Gaza could become a thriving hub that connects North Africa to the Saudi Peninsula.

And the best way to reboot Gazas economy is to improve access between Gaza and the West Bank to stimulate inter Palestinian trade and construction as well as social and economic cohesion

A Gaza that is politically stable for example would attract new Palestinian business investment, and THOUSANDS of Palestinians in the West Bank and diaspora wanting to buy second homes not to mention the thousands of Israeli Arabs..at most a few hours drive away

Lets not forget.also.that it was in Gaza that the prophet sought the inspiration that created Islam

With that sort of precious heritage Palestinians in Gaza have much to live up to

2. The solution is to help "Palestinians" leave
Chaim ,   Israel   (03.27.18)
Israel needs to reverse our thinking about "Palestinians". History proves "Palestinians" harm Israel every chance they get, and as much as they can. Till now, our thinking has been to support our mortal "Palestinian" foes and make them as comfortable as possible on our land. Dumb thinking.

We should be thinking about how to minimize the number of "Palestinians" who squat on our land. Invest in helping them leave instead of invest in helping them stay.
3. It "seems" to me, that chopping off Hydra's heads would
eventually lead the dumb Gazans to voting for a sane leadership, not Hamas.
But the geniuses in our government "seem" to think otherwise.
4. Israel ought to hasten to help Gaza because by so-doing
Khalid Amayreh ,   Jerusalem   (03.27.18)
Israel only help itself.
5. Gaza can be leveled to the ground and the world would
condemn us exactly as it does....anyway/ anyhow, so what's the question again???!
