I am HORRIFIED by what I hear and see on TV .. by the immeasurable suffering of the popultion of Gaza lacking the very basics - by GOD we are in the 21st century, at least till not I wanted to think so!!
I am with you ALL every hour of - stay strong!! I wish I could do anything to help .. I feel so paralysed! We are all blogging up a storm, voicing our opinion and getting out the truth.

I have dear friends in Gaza City, non-political - they just want to LIVE ... I succeeded to exchange a few words with them some five days ago but now there's no connection anymore .. I don't even know if they're still alive! It is killing me ...
HANG IN THERE DEAR ... STAY STRONG - AND WATCH YOURSELF!!

This is horrible!

Stay strong but don't sacrifice your life for a piece of property... Turn your anger towards your Hamas captivators. I am sure that the Israeli attack will stop as soon as Hamas stops firing to Israel and you'll get your life back under Palestinian regim not the backward Hamas control...

Daud's comment is rather "funny" when he mentions Hamas captivators! You see Hamas firing it's ridicule rockets that cause more panick attacks than anything else yet you don't see the Israeli Air strikes, Tank shells and bombardment from the sea? 4 Israelis died since the last Israeli attack on Gaza, over 540 Plaestinians. Does anyone do the math these days?

Let us hope the Israeli madness and world complicity stops. HOw many times must the Palestinians be expelled from their homes searching for non-existent safe places? Israel is worse than any state in its military "operation", for which other peoples have had to suffer being put into a giant prison like the Gazans and then bombed and blamed for their own deaths?

Hamas is not the problem, the problem is Israeli zionism, racism, militarism, colonialism, and arrogance--and the world's acceptance of that and the Arab states non-action of that.

"Hamas is not the problem, the problem is Israeli zionism, racism, militarism, colonialism, and arrogance -"

Don't you realize that it is people like you who endow Hamas with the legitimacy to rig U.N. schools to blow up with children inside when Israelis attack Hamas targets nearby? The same Hamas who threw their political opponents from roof-tops or cut off their legs when they took over Gaza? Will you ever realize that tyranny is the enemy of civilization, or is it that you realize this and just want to be part of the tyranny yourself?

Solomon2:

Where's your proof about the UN schools being rigged? If your proof comes from the IDF, don't bother showing it. Where's the independent proof that the schools were rigged?

Oh yeah, that's right. Israel won't let journalists inside Gaza.

How convenient!

Do you know what Dahlan and his Fatah cronies used to do to their opponents when they had control of Gaza? Probably not, as you seem to know only one side of the story. The people in Gaza didn't vote for Hamas for no reason.

For the record, Hamas, before the election of 2006, had renounced violence as a way to enter the political foray.

Instead of allowing it, Israel and the US decided to have themselves a little coup.

What did you think Hamas would do in response to an attempted coup?

Grow up and realize how much you've been duped.

Daud's comment is the comment of an arrogant hypocrite.

The point is that even though the United States administration approves of Israel's tactics, the entire public opinion knows well that Israel is USA's mercenery terrorist nation. A well equiped nation in military alertness is quite useful for them in order to control the Middle East.
Unfortunately the Palestinians will end like the native Americans at the end. But the real people know. They really do.

Greeks are by your side.
