To tell you the truth, i wouldn't of accepted it either.

You cant just do something like that and expect to be forgiven so easily.

I liked the idea that Israel should of went through Egypt... going straight into the strip to deliver the aid is like a slap in the face IMO. its like trading blood for supplies. Thats not going to fly.

Its like if alqueda (if they ever existed) sent aid to the USA after 9/11. Do you think the USA would of accepted that?

i don't think so.

Kudos for standing their ground.

Israel has a process of shipping aid to the gaza. They have a blockade for a reason; that reason is to block weapons from getting to people who wish to harm them. "Humanitarian aid groups" send aid by unauthorized means to send a message. Just like the ships from Turkey which said just days after this event.

I understand Israel had a process for shipping aid.

But as i said it was posturing. Political posturing using the situation for what it was and over exaggerating from both sides afterward.

Why would anybody accept food from an enemy. It could be contaminated.

It would be better if the UN set up a depot somewhere to accept and inspect aid sent from around the world and let the UN distribute the aid to the people of Gaza.

The UN did have a supply store in Gaza until the IDF bombed it.
