    Under Israeli pressure, U.S. officials have quietly canceled a two-year-old scholarship program for students in the Gaza Strip, undercutting one of the few American outreach programs to people in the Hamas-ruled territory.

    That was a long time ago.

    There are Americans in Gaza all the time without problems. It looks like the Palestinians can tell the good guys from the assholes.

    I'm certain that every school in Gaza teaches the kids to hate Jews and to martyr themselves for the 'Palestinian Cause'. therefore, the Palis are lucky that Israel hasn't demolished every school in the shithole know as Gaza

    I guess Tinny regards those guards who were killed as the asshole bad guys (even though the incident happened previously). There is no doubt in my mind if that incident happened today, Tinny would be very mum about it. Did Hamas tell you that there were Americans in Gaza all the time, Tinny? Maybe they send you E-mails on the computer you don't have at work.
