Silent Guns in Gaza

Gaza residents are out on the streets enjoying the sunshine and the peace. They take this opportunity not only to shop for food and other necessities, but also to make their feelings known. Dozens of women have gathered outside the local parliament building to march towards the home of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas. It’s more like a party than a protest. Music plays. Children skip alongside the marchers, many of them eagerly tugging on our sleeves to be photographed. Women chant: “Hamas and Fatah unite now!” But no one is optimistic. We decide to talk to a friendly-looking group of women. Ridha speaks English and reluctantly agrees to talk to us. After a few halting answers, she suddenly picks up speed, angrily repeating “We are sad. Palestinians killing each other.” But ask for a solution and she shrugs her shoulders and the other women around her nod in agreement. No one has any answers.

You should have asked "Are you Arabs & Jews not brothers?
This "peace" should last about 3 days... I've yet to see the Muslims respond to any issues without resorting to mayhem, rioting, threats, violence, and murder... Just telling it like I see it...
the idea of killing as a means for social and electoral gains is not foreign to palestinian civilians. it is not foreign for muslims.

those who are willing to kill their own, will surely see no barrier in killing others, others who practive a different religion, vote for a different person etc.

the people of Gazza are not confused, they just do not want to admit to western reports the simple fact the values they follow are VERY different then the ones here at the west that we try to spread.

will never happen.
Just Thought id let you know she (Atika Shubert) is doing an awesome job.
