‘Things were better when Israel ruled Gaza’?
“I’m afraid to say this out loud, they may execute me for it, but there are a lot of people, including myself, who think it would be better if Israel came back here. Things would be much better than they are now,” said Samara (alias), a graduate of the Islamic University living in the Gaza Strip.

They were certainly better for the Arabs. And the Jews in Israel were not under constant rocker attacks.
Actually, the Muslim terrorists in Gaza seem very effective at eliminating one another. In the last several days Arabs have murdered over 50 other Arabs in Gaza.
Their newest tactic is to tie up a fellow Muslim and throw him off a skyscraper.
Perhaps they are doing the work for the West.
The whole "Palestinian People" is made up, just to try to eliminate Israel. The Land of Israel is the biblical home of the Jewish People, and the Jewish People have maintained a presence there continuously.
If you were naive enough to believe what you hear on the news and media, you would think there is an entity called a "Palestinian people," who lived in a "country/state/area" called Palestine since Canaanite/Biblical/Muslim times. You would almost believe that the Israelis occupied "Palestine" in 1967. And you might even think that the Palestinians want the occupiers out of their land. And of course, you might feel, they are entitled to do whatever it takes to get their land back. No? No. Not at all, Here are the facts.
Who are the Palestinians? Palestinians are Arabs. They have no historical, national or cultural identity distinct from other Arabs of the region. Most of them came into Palestine in search of economic opportunities after World War I when the British and the Jews began to build up a land that was moribund.
What is Palestine? When the Romans conquered Judea, they renamed it Palestine. Since then, no occupying power ever made it an independent state or established a capital in Jerusalem. Under the Ottoman Empire, it was part of the province of Syria.
After World War I, the area was mandated to Britain to establish a Jewish national home. Instead, in 1922, Britain split off 75% of Palestine to establish the Emirate of Transjordan, as a throne for the Arabian Hashemite family.
The UN decided to split the remaining 25% of Palestine between Jews and Arabs. In 1948, five Arab armies attacked the newborn State of Israel. Transjordan annexed the area intended for an Arab state, and renamed itself the Kingdom of Jordan, calling the annexed area the West Bank. Egypt took over Gaza.
No Arab suggested making the West Bank and/or Gaza into yet another Arab state until 1967, when Israel was again attacked by the Arabs and took these areas.

Yeah right...I remember that a few years after the communism has fallen in Eastern Europe people used to say that it was much better under communism...Well guess they all forget how if you would have said something bad about communism and their leaders you could have ended up in jail or dead or how you could not find even bread or meat in stores...Well guess some,at the first bad thing that happens when they are "free" (I couldn't call them totally free,but...),forget easily what happened before...

Israel may end up being forced to go back in and crush another terrorist organization. Maybe this time around the "Palestinians" will figure out that supporting genocidal terrorists isn't in their best interests..

Well my best advice for you is try to get out and immigrate somewhere else.
Your people now have the Islamic state that you voted and fought for. Enjoy

It was better but for whom, the Israelis ?? Everyone knew that when we insisted that elections be held in the Gaza the Hamas would be the winner and lead to what is happening right now. Bush and Company are to darned stupid to know anything about foreign affairs!!! Now we have another area that will have to be cleared of maniacs.

That is 100% right. That young person is also 100% right in being afraid for his life.
