I couldn't afford to waste all the time to read your 3898 words long novel, but it is quite obvious from what I have read that you put all the blame for the Palestinian misery on the Jewish State. However I thoroughly scanned through you post for the word Egypt without any hit. Apparently in your mind, Egypt has nothing to do with what is going on in Gaza.

Just for your kind information, the State of Israel emerged with the mission to provide solutions to the plight of the Jewish people who were till then forced to live in the Diaspora. The Jewish mass emigration brought life and prosperity to a till then forgotten and neglected province of marshes, desert, and wastelands. The Arabs, as per their already very well known routine, readily reaped and enjoyed the benefits of this new prosperity, but at the same time did everything possible to murder and destroy the Jewish presence in this region. This is written in all the history books, and you easily can get all the information.

To make a long story short, it is not Israel's duty to solve all the problems caused by the Arab incompatibility, and refusal to live and let live. Israel has its hands full with problems of its own, most of them caused by the aggressiveness of its Arab neighbors. The hundreds of milliards of Arab petrodollars invested in murderous terror, in exhausting arms races, and in building of expensive military infrastructures could be used also for solving the problems of the Palestinians and of the rest of the Arabs. But this has never been attempted.

You can blame some Jews for some problems, some of the time, but you cannot blame the Jews all the time, and for everything, even though among your kind this is a well established routine.
