When Gaza makes the front page, the photo is usually of Palestinian
militants on the rubble of a bombed-out apartment building or at the
funeral of a comrade, waving Kalashnikov rifles and howling defiantly
against Israel. Those images have lately been replaced by ones of
shivering, waiflike children holding a candlelight protest against
Israel's blackout of large parts of Gaza. The kids are a reminder that
not all of Gaza's 1.5 million Palestinians are gunmen, and that Israel's
prolonged economic blockade of the territory is taking a heavy toll
I'm not sure what disconcerting: that Time Magazine felt it necessary to print such a reminder, or that there are people out there who need such a reminder.
