These arabs want destruction of israel not more money. Money going into gaza goes to hamas not poor arabs. Millions of dollars are sent by quatar to gaza every month of which almost all goes to hamas. The money is allowed in to stop rockets and terror balloons causing fires in israel and riots every friday of 10,000 at the border fence. Every week they try to break thru the fence. The money does stop them

Perhaps those who don’t, will be given more hope if they see that the Jews don’t hate them.
Also some might be Jews, due to kidnappings and forced intermarriages.

if Hamas was merely very annoyed at us and just wanted to throw shoes at us and spit in our coffee. Disgusting and disrespectful but not the complete end of the world.
But when they actually want to kill us, no you can’t really take chances like that since Hamas is in control of the people.

Tax

Tax

Who is tax being paid to? PA, Hamas, Israel, no tax? If no tax, or tax goes to Israel, let people live! every individual regardless of political beliefs are allowed to live and make a living.

Reverse BDS?

Reverse BDS?

We can’t stand when others do this to us but have no qualms doing it to others. Hypocrisy…

Well, gee...
Guest
Well, gee...

…maybe it has something to do with the Gazans firing rockets at Israel, and they and the other Palestinians celebrating their “martyrs” who kill Jews, whereas Israel does neither? Your moral equivalence is at best naive and at worst disgusting.

No bds
Guest
No bds

We don’t want BDS. We shouldn’t do it to others. Maybe using the binders for a mitzva will elevate the area they are from for more mitzvos.

we don't want Hamas

Every day someone works making a lulav binder is one less day they have to work in the tunnels to earn a few shekel. And since there are no ‘work accidents’ while making binders, maybe they remark, see there can be another way. And then they remember the old days before the intifada and Hamas, when Gazan Arabs had real jobs, and their lives were undeniably a million times better, even though there were thriving Jewish communities in Gaza and they all lived under a “Zionist” government.
