    One of my recent posts in the my world of Internet Peace Journalism:

    So Israel Helps Gaza folks who have been in dire Straights for decades by giving them just enough to keep from death and starving while not allowing other nations to Help. That is also the way of prisons except outside people can send aid to most prisoners. Israel needs to follow the Golden Rule.
