in response to reader comment: Present Arab-Israeli conflict

To take your points one at a time. Why is it Israel's job to improve life for the Palestinians? When Israel got out of Gaza the Palestinians were given quite a number of hydroponic greenhouses with all the equipment a multi million dollar gift. They are now in ruins because the Palestinians destroyed them.

And as far as the dead children are concerned, while that is tragic in any case, I would say the real difference between Israel and the Palestinians is that when Israel gets into that situation it is an accident whereas when Palestinians kill Israeli children ,it is by their own statements, no accident but was the purpose of the operation.

And if John Hancock is your real name I'm King Fahd.
