I feel that I must give a reply to Dave Hilsheimer's letter regarding violence in Gaza.
Hamas, a terrorist organization, was voted into office by the majority of the people of Gaza.
When Israel left Gaza a few years ago, they left them a great asset in the many greenhouses, with which the Palestinians could have used to grow their own fruits and vegetables.
What did they do? They chose to destroy them rather than use them for some good.
Concrete and materials that were being shipped into Gaza at the time, for rebuilding purposes, were instead put to use into building a tunnel system to attack Israel.
Remember one thing. If Hamas laid down their arms, there would be lasting peace.
If Israel laid down their arms, there would be nothing but mass murder.
