may be you should go to gaza, you will the opposite there, shame on you CNN, is the starvation made by israel is not enough news?? hospitals are running out of medicine and 750000 people will be starved because of the israeli border closure in Gaza, talk about bias in the news, shame on the arabs, the muslims and the whole world, if had respect to ourselves israel would not have dared to do this, may be the filthy gukf countries cut the oil supply, but instead they are busy opening hotels with a party that costs too much money it would probably solve many problems in many 3rd world countries, shame on humanity...

Gaza is not starving, goods are being allowed across the border from Israel, the crossings from Egypt are closed (apart from the tunnels that provide plenty) yet the missiles are still being fired into Israel.

Also, two days ago Barak offered a complete opening of the border in return for 24-hours without rockets. What did Hamas do? That's right, they just shot more rockets.

What have the palestinians done till date. In world's history no other region has been given more aid than the palestinians. Dont blame other countries if you cannot keep you own politics clean of corruption and daily scandals. We can just expect more messages like the ones posted here. You people cannot even stand up for your own rights. Its just because because you are used to shifting the blame on other countries. Any region cannot be powerful just because of its politicians, even the local people have to take part in it. You cannot even form a unity government. Stop blaming and cursing others. Start working from grass root levels. If not your life atleast your children life will be much better. Atleast they dont have to beg like you.

Let see

1. Israel was created out of palestinian land without UN or British approval.
2. Pushed out Palestinians from their land which they have farmed for more than 2000 years, because someone called Moses said that it is Jewish peoples promised land,
3. Under pressure from US – UN ( US created organization after WW11)
recognizes Israel although initially they said it was illegal
4. Imports Jewish people from all over the world, including Ethiopia and resettled them in occupied land .
5. Continue to build on occupied land ignoring all UN resolution confirming illegal occupation.
6. Israel ignores all UN resolutions
7. Israel have made Palestinians who are poor farmers destitute
8. They have no help from anyone even their Muslim brethren.
9. They get abused at every turn,
10. Palestinian youth throw stones and Israel retaliate with bulldozers
11. You know why they send crude rockets? because they are too poor have Tanks and Jet fighters. Otherwise it would be an even fight.
12. Israel, US and UK are bullies. They pick fights with weaklings
None of them want to take on Russia over Georgia invasion or China over Tibet invasion- shame on you!
If this continues the greatest revolt will come within Israel where atheism is growing among Jewish people( over 30%) and will destroy the very essence of Israel.
- and I am not an Arab Muslim . I am an agnostic.
