Gaza's collective self destruction :: BBC NEWS

Quote: there is now a growing appreciation of the depth of the malaise in Palestinian society. Hafiz Barghouti, the editor of the newspaper Al-Hayat Al-Jadeed, has written: "It appears we are neither prepared to change, nor admit that we have failed in running our own affairs. Everyone is busy calculating how to make the biggest possible gains at the homeland's expense. "While most Palestinians find it easy to blame the occupation for all our ills, it is a fact that the occupation was not as bad as the lawlessness and corruption that we are now facing."

Others will still want to blame the morbidly obese man, and not look to themselves. The past is a given, but the future is in your hands.
