lawless is the word- poor gaza- the jewish judge samson ruled it at one time and they were disputing then too
Israel's silly concession of ripping their people up and pulling out of there did nothing for peace and instead allowed the terrorists to arm themselves and attack israel from an even closer point
As I understand it, From an historical viewpoint the Romans named the area palestine [from much earlier coquerers the philistines-instead of its original Judea Samaria ] a couple of thousand years ago because the Jews who , who lived there since coming into the land as a result of the arahamic covenant from egypt were such trouble makers and could not be disbursed no matter who took over their land-
from the assyrians, babylonians, greeks, arab, turks , french, english - the romans even ploughed Jerusalem under and renamed it Aola Capitalina but there has been a jewish presence there for more than 3500 years and up to May 1948 when all their neighbours tried to wipe them out.
The Iranians should take a lesson from History and back off lol
...and imo there will never be a two state solution because my bible says all the land there from egypt up to beyond damascus and east to the euphrates is Israel's
So the parties are fighting gods plan and it will never work out
The us should take warning and know that -but all the previous regimes didnt learn that either and they are not players anymore

I came here to say exactly what the original poster said.
Gaza can be an amazing place to visit, but try staying away right now, there's tension since the elections are up and coming, so there are possibilities of kidnapping, and political violence.
