First, in deference to your admitted affinity for the Muslim sensibilities we can dispense with the typical trades of whose view is best, for yours is plain to see. But for the sake of making such disparities part of the common dialogue, take a moment to ponder these items.

PART 1

1) Israel is the target of political and hostile intentions, being the recipient of various and nefarious attacks upon their sovereignty, the attacking agents having self described reason for making their malicious intentions manifest by sending 'humanitarian' missions to Gaza, only to find that they were prepared to make war if necessary.

2) If Israel, so too Turkey, Syria, Hizbollah, Hamas, etc., etc.

3) Israel does not create the siege: their only mistake was letting Gaza fall into the hands of the very enemies that PROMISED to do exactly what they are doing-Israel should never have left Gaza.

PART 2

1) The report should never have been written in the first p[lace, for it politicality would always be a source of contention and would never have the correct conclusion accepted by any sides.

2) The General Assembly is a biased body of politicians who have demonstrated over and over again that the United Nations lost their virginity of objectivity by interfering with the world's politics under the misguided sense that anyone can get a Pulitzer prize by standing up and making any cause just by any humanitarian rationale that fits any circumstance anyone wants. Peace has never, NEVER, been achieved by the United Nations.

Conclusion: Israel is forced by an evil intention of many to continue the imposition of post-war mentality that there is no place in the world for a Jewish state, especially not in the Middle East, which strangely is exactly where the Jewish people came from. Unless and until anyone who has a bone to chew about what Israel is doing to protect her people as any government is responsible to do and can accept that, no one can make any appropriate comments until walking the distance in Israeli shoes and feeling what it is like to be Jewish in a world that seems less and less willing to care.
