Politics in Gaza

"Geoffrey Dennis, chief executive of the global humanitarian group Care International, said it was not a time for politics.

"Fifty per cent of the population in Gaza are under the age of 18; they're not interested in the politics in this, they want to go to school and play football like my son. "

Politics is somehow optional is it? Who are these people that think you can brush aside all the complexities of an issue by avoiding 'the politics' (so that you agree with their position). They work for an international NGO. Shocking naivety.

The answer is more and better politics, not trying to wish the politics out of existence.
