Also, if you elect a government who's public policy is the complete destruction of another nation I don't think you should be surprised when said nation isn't hugs and kisses with your government. One might even say that you bear some of the responsibility for what your government does, a la Nazi Germany...
But this wouldn't have been a problem in the first place if it wasn't for western arrogance. Israel is a country created by the destruction of Palestine they are in a game of tit for tat and no one is prepared to give up until they what what is "theirs".

And if Palestinians need to bear responsibility for Hamas the people of Israel need to bear responsibility for starving half their people to death. As it is the only people who are being asked to take responsibility are the Palestinians and they have done the least wrong. It's all how you perceive events and how they are presented to you.
