My Mideast Punchlines: of course, they all love Israel…..

The Washington Post looks at the “wasted generation” of Gaza youth, who grew up under Hamas, unemployed and unable to leave the Strip.

But in many interviews, in their torn-just-so jeans and fresh white sneakers, Gaza’s young people today say they would rather fight for a job in Tel Aviv than fight Israelis.

“If the borders were open, I’d work in Israel in a minute. I got absolutely no problem with that. Everybody would work in Israel,” said Iyad Abu Heweila, 24, who graduated with a degree in English education two years ago but now spends his days hanging out.

Of course he would. Unfortunately, rather than work, a goodly number of Gazans would spend their time seeking out Jews to stab. Let’s face it, getting jailed is the only way they can assure their families of a monthly stipend — from our aid money. Roll on the Taylor Force Act. Meanwhile, ‘Our Kid’ Iyad will have to remain kicking his heels until Hamas are history. Don’t hold your breath.
