Heartbreak for seven Fulbright Gaza students

Seven aspiring students in Gaza have been told by the US State Department that they cannot take up their Fulbright scholarships to study in the USA as Israel will not give them permission to leave.

What a disaster for them and how stupid of the Israelis. Those seven students will hate the Israelis for ever. Surely this is the sort of thing that should be encouraged. As I have said before every daily story coming out of Gaza and the West Bank just reinforces the feelings that the Israelis have no intention of making peace.

And what about the US? How cowardly of them not to insist that these students should get to travel. T
