I strongly agree. The rest of the world would want Israel to commit suicide by unilateral disarmament. Fortunately, they know too full well what would happen to them if they did so.
Basically, they have done the same thing the U.S. Navy did during the Cuban Missile Crisis almost 48 years prior - imposition of a naval blockade.

Hamas have been painted out to be evil because of the actions of minority extremists..
Although even mothers of children in Gaza wish for violence against Israel.. not because they think it will do any good but because conditions are so bad in Gaza that everyone is completely suicidal.
This is not my opinion but words spoken to me by a friend from Jordan who whas family living in Gaza.
Why fire a home made rocket (made of actual rocks) when you know you will get airstrikes in return? To answer this question you have to take into account whether life is worth living.
Human beings have certain rights and the violation of those rights is against international law.. the only reson Israel is allowed to get away with this is because JOURNALISTS AND THE MEDIA ARE NOT ALLOWED INTO GAZA.

From an Israeli website, and keep in mind this is NOT all given by Israel, jusy ALLOWED to get through...
In a typical week, 15,000 tons of supplies enter Gaza including truckloads of meat, poultry, fish, dairy products, fish, vegetables, milk powder, baby food, wheat and other essential goods.
As I know you have seen me post in other threads,
There are over 2 million people in Gaza so to put this in perspective, thats a miserable 7kgs of aid per week for each person..
That is not enough just for water.........Thats 7litres each per week, 1 litre per day....
Dont know about you but I would be DEAD by now...
So much for caring Israel...

Well guy, I am aware Hamas teaches toddlers hate, violence, and suicide. That is enough for me to reject their sorry terrorist a$$es. Watch their version of micky mouse... disgusting.

Well, you could start by pointing out the "hate filled with false information, ignorance, hypocisy, personal attacks and flat out bigotry" and offering a counter argument.
That would be a good place to start, surely?
Where is the hate?
Where is the misinformation?
Where is the hypocrasy and bigotry?
Or are you of the grain that any criticism of Israel, no matter what, is anti-semitism?
The Americans blocked nuclear weapons from Cuba over the space of two weeks. The Israelis are blocking food and humanitarian aid from the Palestinians for over a year.
