Everything I wrote this morning is true, but there is much more to the equation. This isn’t only a matter about the current tensions and the Friday demonstrations, it’s about the horrible conditions of life in Gaza and how it came to be that way.
Peter Beinart writes in his must-read article in The Forward about all of this – “American Jews Have Abandoned Gaza – And the Truth”.

Very thought provoking article I am happy to share and say thank you for posting the link. “The alternative is a strategy built not on collective punishment but on hope. It would begin with dismantling much of the blockade…” A process the people take one step at a time.

I would recommend to Mr. Peter Beinart to spend just a few weeks near the Gaza border, exposed, along with thousands of Israeli civilians, to missiles and tunnels of destruction, and then draw conclusions.
