#4 and the IDF keeps honest Paleo miners from finding gold - they keep shutting down their extensive digging projects. Oh! The humanity....

#5 Those fisherman are lucky they get to fish at all! Who knows what they're up to?

Let them fish off the coasts of their own countries.

#6 " Who knows what they're up to?"

I saw a short bit on cable news ( fox? ) about this. The piece consisted of interviews with Paleo fishermen talking about how their life sucked intercut with clips of small boats, in one case a life boat, blowing up in the vicinity of Israeli patrol boats. A life boat! Gosh, do you suppose there is some link between fishing restrictions and exploding boats?

#7 boy! Those Paleo fisherman are lucky that life boat didn't blow up near them!

Sounds like the Israeli navy is looking out for their safety. It's too dangerous to be out fishing if random lifeboats are blowing up!

#8 Mebbe Britain will be kind enough to send those poor impoverished fishermen Hamza's hooks. Goodness knows he won't be needing them anytime soon.

#9 The fishermen are trapped between their economic needs and Israel's security needs.

Hold on a minute! This is pure-dee banana oil. Always make to sure to follow the money.

"Israel's security needs" have nothing to do with this. Those fishermen are trapped between "their economic needs" and one (and only one) particular @sshole's ethical and moral bankruptcy, namely, Yasser Arafat's.

#10 Exploding life boats---why do they hate us?

#11 The obvious solution is for the UN to redeploy the "combat-experienced" Uraguayans and their speedboats from Africa to the coast of the Gaza Strip.
