Well the Palestinians have tried farming but Israel keeps bulldozing their harvest so that the Israeli settlers can extend their farms living near by.
THERE ARE ROCKETS BEING FIRED DAILY ON ISRAEL.
I refuse to agree to "normal" situation when entire Israeli south is bombarded daily.
When Israel was occupying Gaza conditions were much much better. And what Palestinian land exactly? Look at UN partition plan - area surrounding Gaza is Israeli.
If Israel turned away a ship, you need to say ***WHY*** did they turn the ship away.

Starting in April each year, there is a migration of fish from the Nile Delta to Turkish waters which Palestinian fishermen have traditionally relied upon. Yet Israel limits fishing 6 miles from the Gaza shore and regularly attacks those who venture further than 3 miles - over 70 fishermen were arrested last year by the Israeli forces. The large schools that form the migration are usually found 10 miles from shore. The average catch of fish was over 3000 tons a year in the 1990’s, now it is around 500 tons directly due to the Israeli siege of Gaza.
Gaza's fishing industry has been hit particularly hard. Under the 1993 Oslo accords, Gazan fishermen were to be allowed 20 nautical miles out to sea. According to Oxfam, fishermen are now only allowed six miles out to sea - not far enough out to reach the schools of large fish - and risk being shot or arrested if they breach this limit.

Israeli forces have shot dead a Palestinian farmer in the village of Yamoun in the north of the West Bank.

I say tough **it. They have their priorities all wrong. Instead of shipping in weapons, maybe the idiots should be bringing in food.
