I find it shameful that people must remain hungry, sick, and desperate while those who are 'leaders' play games.....
It's one thing to shame Israel over their ridiculously heavy-handed approach to the situation, but it is another to remain intransigent to the effort to relay the aid because it might interfere with righteous outrage.
This entire region needs a spiritual enema.

I would like to know the reasoning behind this, I heard the report also, however the reason was not given- Im certain there is one, it just isnt being brodcast. Got one version- I would like the other
But the following day, Hamas Social Affairs Minister Ahmad al-Kurd told reporters that it would accept the aid only if it entered "without anything being stolen from the activists, and without any exceptions."
"This includes the prefabricated homes, the cement, the iron and the electric generators," he said.

"We will refuse the aid as long as the victims of Israel's attack remain in prison. Without exception we demand their release," Al-Kurd said during a Gaza City press conference. Palestinenote.com

I'm surprised nobody has mentioned yet that Hamas are only waiting for Turkey to be given the chance to check that the IDF haven't nicked anything from the aid package, and then they'll accept it. If they accept now, and stuff's missing, then Israel will call them liars.

Why didn't that CNN article mention these official statements from Hammas?
Those statements seem very important to the story. I wonder why they left this out? Very strange. - Lee
