Israel pulled out of Gaza in 2006 which meant forcibly pulling out Jews from the homes that they had lived in for generations and demolishing their homes in order to give Gaza to the Palestinians. Israel is the only nation in the world that has ceaded land for peace when it gave up the Gaza strip for peace. Yet since the cease fire more than 8000 rockets have been fired indiscriminately into Israeli civilian population. I was in Sderot, Israel on the border of the Gaza strip on July 27th, 2010 and on July 3oth, 2010 a Qassam rocket was fired into Sderot from the Gaza Strop, which hit a rehabilitation centre.
When you hear the rederick about ‘Occupation or Apratheid in Israel’ ask yourself why an ‘occupier’ would willingly take it’s own people out of Gaza and give Gaza over to the opposing force for the sake of Peace. Then ask yourself why Hamas and Hizbollah haven’t done anything to improve the condition of the people whom they are responsible for in Gaza and West Bank?
