This is the point, Gaza awakened stored up frustration. It is the bloback from relentless spin.

I was thinking today how one event sets off the collective memory of people to remind them of past things they knew but have stored in the back of their minds. It may occur when the issue in focus has a long history in which it becomes an almost normal occurrence in your everyday life even if it is unacceptable and a crime. I find it very disturbing how the human psyche can become accustomed to a certain bad event or issue basically a negative adaptation mixed with apathy.

According to Palestinian medical sources, Jarboe died on Sunday from injuries suffered last week after an Israeli naval gunboat opened fire to prevent fishing boats from coming outside Gaza’s port, a few hours after Israel declared a unilateral ceasefire.

This is what happened to the Palestinian cause across the decades. It is something we live with everyday, we hear every other day a Palestinian died or was wrongly imprisoned and then we move on with life. We know it is happening but this abnormal situation and disorder was accepted by many as if it just of one these things that happen around the world.
