Israel cuts off fuel to palestine


www.foxnews.com

Children marched through dark dark streets holding candles, an angry Hamas TV announcer shouted at the camera "we are being killed, we are starving!" and Palestinian leaders issued emotional pleas for national unity. Israel accused Gaza's Hamas rulers of fabricating a crisis to gain world sympathy.

Electricity officials shut down Gaza's only power plant just before 8 p.m. (1800 GMT) Sunday, Gaza Energy Authority head Kanan Obeid said.

Health Ministry official Moaiya Hassanain warned that the fuel cutoff would cause a health catastrophe. "We have the choice to either cut electricity on babies in the maternity ward or heart surgery patients or stop operating rooms," he said

I don't understand how/why the Palestinians don't use the one energy resource that is in abundance in their geographic location to mitigate these petty acts by the Israeli state...solar power!

Whilst basic lo-tech thermal/PV roof-top arrays may not be enough to power all of life's electronic luxuries, it could be enough to keep essential medical and communication infrastructure running

i'm sure the palestinians would LOVE to use solar power for energy.
i'm sure they'd love to use ANYTHING for energy. they can't simply
import needed technology to do what they wish. everything that comes
in to them is checked, allowed or denied. their every move is governed
by the israelis. simple things like food, water, heat (it gets cold there),and
decent hospitals are all rationed. i don't have the right to question the
actions of the political differences of the israelis nor the palestinians,
but as a human of the earth, i can say that making children suffer
does have it's repercussions. it has in every case of differences ever
on the earth and always will.
