Will For Life

Ilan Pappe comments in the The Electronic Intifada about the Palestinian's will for life.

The earlier strategy in Gaza was ghettoizing the Palestinians there, but this is not working. The ghettoized community continues to express its will for life by firing primitive missiles into Israel. Ghettoizing or quarantining unwanted communities, even if they were regarded as sub-human or dangerous, never worked in history as a solution.
That is the ticket. Show your will for life by antagonizing a country with one of the strongest militaries in the world.

Why has Gaza been ghettoized? Well it seems that the Gazans keep attacking Israel. Israel was hoping that giving the Palestinians their own territory would move them to peaceful pursuits. It hasn't worked as planned.
