Israel made a terrible mistake today listening to the world opinion regarding raising the blockade of Gaza. The blockade, which has been going on now for some weeks, is a result of Gaza-Palestinian long-ranging missile attacks on Jewish civilians. Sadly now though, Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert lifted the chokehold on Gaza. Will this result in that the Palestinians will feel grateful and happy again with their Jewish neighbors? Of course not; they will continue to send out their young ones, supporting terror organizations, and killing innocent civilians. Daily rocket fire into Israel is nothing special for the Israelis and it doesn’t seem that the Arabs will change.
Israel pulled out of Gaza in 2005 and since then the situation has aggravated. The palestians have shown themselves uncapable of forming a democratic government and protecting and respecting basic human rights.
I hope the Israelis know what they are doing. If the rockets come raining down again, they should put up the same blockade even harder. Hopefully, Hamas and the other terrorist Arabs got the message.
