The absurdity of the Israel-Arab conflct

Reader comment on: Who Is Really Besieging Gaza?

Submitted by Batya Casper,, Nov 15, 2012 14:40

Countries around the Middle East - vast tracks of land - are sinking into the chaos and blood-shed of the Arab winter. The one peace-loving regime in the region is the democratic state of Israel - which is tiny, no larger than Rhode Island. For sure it can't be easy for Hamas, (the Middle Eastern counterpart to El Quaida.) They are forced to expend such enormous energies into maintaining the myth of the "poor" and "embattled" Gaza. It must be such a chore for them, with so much gratuitous violence flying around, to keep the eyes of the world trained on Israel as the bully of the neighborhood. Yet why are they so upset? Thanks to them, the Israel-Arab conflict is alive and well.
