The following are excerpts from the debate on http://2changetheworld.info – the website dedicated to a discussion of the Revolutionary Communist Party,USA’s Draft Programme and issues of revolutionary strategy.
The Gaza strip is a perfect realization of the Israeli vision of "separation". Surrounded with electric fences and army posts, completely sealed off the outside world, Gaza has become a huge prison. About one-third of its land was confiscated for the 7,000 Israeli settlers living there (and their defense array), while over a million Palestinians are crowded in the remaining areas of the prison. Now Israel is considering the imprisonment there of families of suicide bombers from the West Bank.
Our daughter's death by suicide bomber is a result of the terror of Israel's occupation. A BIG red "Free Palestine" sticker has prominent place on the Elhanan family's front door.This is not a Palestinian house in the occupied territories.
