I don't know what is happening over there but it is very dissapointing. We all feel hurt to see the palestinian suffering, and we pray for them as well as we do - although almost meaningless - give contribution to be in their side.

And finally there was/is a chance to grab to forward their aspiration, but.

They don't even respect their own life. Taking life was so easy, for what? to prove that you are right? The world is watching and they have seen it - and I have seen it.

There was a chance to pursue for the good of the people, but from day one it was used for gun fight. If life is so cheap even for themselves shall I become emotional for their plight? most likely not, it is dwindling so fast, even as I speak.

It is your life.

I wouldn't be so fast to judge here.
If someone offered to pay me a million dollars to bear false witness I
wouldn't do it now. I'm well off I can afford to be nobel.
I don't know that I wouldn't slit my neighbors throat over a loaf of bread
under the same conditions my relatives endured 66 years ago in the camps.
I don't push human rights because I'm an altruist. I want my children and
theirs to have a future. If we keep treating each other like animals we will
become just that.

Dear Daniel, I feel the same way. Its easy to talk when we're not in the same situation but I don't know what kind of a "monster" I would become just to save my family or my life if there was no way out.
