    But here is a story of an adorable boy from Gaza who is severely handicapped due to the Palestinian custom of family intermarriage, and who has spent much of his young life in an Israeli hospital because his parents don’t want him back.

    Show us some Palestinian’s doing similar acts of kindness, then I’ll think this kindness stuff will get the conflict somewhere. There’s money behind the conflict so it’s going to take something more powerful than kindness and American presidents nattering about “peace” every time the latter get in trouble domestically to change the current situation.

    Petakh Tikva – one of a handful of cities that had a baseball team a few years ago when some wealthy baseball-loving Americans tried to bring the sport to Israel.

    Name one act of kindness by the Palestinians.
