    Bones, I think you might wish to look at Christianity to find loving treatment of ones stated foes who work to destroy them. At least they state to turn the other cheek if you are looking to be surprised. You shouldn't be surprised.

    The Jews are Old Testament. Sorry to disappoint you. There's no other cheek there. The same thing with Islam. It also is not a turn the other cheek belief.

    I have no doubt things are not easy there, but if the Hamas stopped spending their money for military infrastructure and spent some time on really working towards creating a Palestinian entity capable of administering to a fledgling new state then maybe they would get somewhere. They are far off from stopping killing their own even yet.

    They are party and part to their welfare.

    We needed WIKILEAKS to intuit this?

    I don't think we did.

    The systematic closing of the border pretty much assures that GAZA's economy is non existent.
