Big day ahead for Gaza Strip

Shooting. Killing. Cease-fire. Peace talks. Tense waiting. Repeat.
Why do reports on the Isreal/Palestine conflict continue to follow this vicious cycle over and over again?

On Aug. 17, Israel will allegedly remove itself from the Gaza Strip as part of a "land-for-peace" initiative between Israel and Palestine. This unilateral decision will force a lot of folks away from their homes. Violence has already erupted among some Palestinian militant groups.

Whenever I read about the Gaza Strip, I think back to a Political Science professor I once had who referred to the area as "a small strip of land made up of dirt and rocks."

here's one recent Q and A

Man, the Gaza Strip sounds like a rather sucky place to live. Us Yanks should invite all the Palestinians and Israelis over to the REAL promised land--the Wisconsin Dells. I'm not sure what Gaza's got that's so special, but it sure ain't minigolf, laser tag, and six (count 'em) SIX water parks.
