GAZA — The American State Department has withdrawn all Fulbright grants to Palestinian students in Gaza hoping to pursue advanced degrees at American institutions this fall because Israel has not granted them permission to leave.

It is so amazing to me that US government actions are always in the direction of empowering the rulers and taking away the power of people. How does withdrawing education help the cause of blood suckers in Israel? Can someone explain to me how withdrawing education from average guy is going to devestate Hamas? Wouldn't it actually help Hamas? If I was US government, I would quadruple those grants and get those people educated fast! I don't get it.

One does not expect Israeli towns and cities bordering with Gaza to absorb thousands and thousands of rockets coming from the Pals, without their government do all they can to deter those thugs in Gaza from continuing their stupid and senseless act.

There WILL be education, peace, prosperity and no prison for the residents of Gaza, when the residents of Sderrot, & Ashkelon also have their peace and security.

The truth is, due to their continued attacks against Israel, the leadership in Gaza has lost its credibility to garner any sympathy for their whining and crying to get attention. No one believes their cry of invented occupation, siege and manufactured Resistance. People from around the world already know the reasons for Israel's actions against the radical (and stupid) Pals. That is the reason for the reticent from the world community. The all understand that Israel is trying to protect their civilians.

We have already reached that stage which I call "The Palestinian Fatigue".
