I do think that they've gone overboard with the items they are restricting. I don't see how restricting ginger will help anything unless the goal is to make everyone miserable to the point that they'll do anything to kick out Hamas. That is most likely their goal.
While this is probably better than bombing the place I don't think they're going about it the right way. They can do enough damage restricting building materials which puts unemployment through the roof.
At that point it doesn't matter what they allow in. No one can afford it.

Look, I don't see real food on this list, just chocolates and #, and farm animals.
I do agree that it's stupid, but it isn't like preventing produce, and rice and stuff from entering...
I don't see how preventing chocolate starves them...
It's still all stupid and pointless as I said, but you're exaggerating.
