The setting up of the 'State of Israel' as such was never approved by the United Nations.
Yet you call on Israel to abide by resolutions passed by the UN who had no role in its creation, don't think thats what you meant, if the UN came to recognize a country it did not create can anyone else do so?
Palestinians living in terror and appalling conditions breed more hate and revenge against Israel, Israelis living in terror and bunkers while unguided missiles are fired at them breeds what? Do we expect human beings on one side to be affected differently by terror, humans are the same the world over, their responses can be predicted.
Gaza has a border with Egypt, yet all the media only has acces via Israel, why does the Egyptian Govt. not allow media access through its border? The conditions of the border does have some conditions, I believe Israel expects Egypt to ensure that weapons and ammunition are not allowed, I find it hard to believe that the media is included.
During the last Lebanon conflict, this discussion came up, my solution is the same, I do not believe that the Gaza stip is viable, it should be traded with Israel for like size land area adjoining the West Bank. If / when Palestine becomes an independent nation, Gaza will be physically seperated from the rest of the nation, it will be a landlocked divided nation.
Presently, there is too much hatred on both sides for any viable nations to be created with safe corridors, neither side will feel safe from the other, at least the West Bank will have more border area, Gaza will only have Israel, Egypt and the sea. Something which confuses my understanding of the issue is the border crossings between Israel and Gaza, why does Israel open it, especially when they consider the danger of suicide bombers, they would be letting the bombers in, is there any viable trade between both parties?
The border with Egypt, why is humanitarian aid, food, fuel etc. not shipped into Gaza from Egypt, is that border closed for any reason, why would the UN and other aid organizations subject themselves to the Israeli rules and stoppages, when they could easily set up shop in Egypt and ship in supplies unhindered, no one is accusing the UN of shipping in weapons so whats the problem there? Prior to the border being given over to Egypt the situation was different, Israel controlled everything, but the sea is nearby, boats could land in Egypt and trucks could get supplies into Gaza, why is it in the best interest of so many people to see the citizens of Gaza suffer when they can be supplied without the consent of Israel.
There are many questions in the ordeal, way too many.
