Patrick Cockburn: Gaza is Dying

"Gaza is a jail. Nobody is allowed to leave. We are all starving now."

Two thirds of people are unemployed and the remaining third who mostly work for the state are not being paid. Gaza is now by far the poorest region on the Mediterranean. Per capita annual income is $700, compared with $20,000 in Israel. Conditions are much worse than in Lebanon where Hizbollah liberally compensates war victims for loss of their houses.
Are victimized in childhood right wing Jews repeating history and beginning their own holocaust?
