Israel has announced it will ease the land blockade of the Gaza Strip and allow more civilian goods to enter the Palestinian territory. It comes amid growing international pressure to end the embargo. An Israeli commando raid on an aid flotilla attempting to break the naval blockade of Gaza last month was widely condemned. The decision to ease the blockade, agreed by Israel's security cabinet after a two-day meeting, will see the expansion of the number of products Israel will allow into Gaza via border crossing points, including construction materials. The naval blockade will remain in place. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's office said in a statement that Israel would: "liberalise the system by which civilian goods enter Gaza"; "expand the inflow of materials for civilian projects that are under international supervision"; and "continue existing security procedures to prevent the inflow of weapons and war material".

Finally...
This chocolate blockade was a poor decision made by the Israeli government that I regret took so long to be corrected.
There is a light at the end of the tunnel.

Needless to say the ban on weapons and such will be rightfully maintained.

Personally I believe the blockade should not have been imposed in the first place, so nothing but a total removal is good enough.....

And yes, that includes arms...

Why should Israel be allowed to increase its supply of arms (storing for the US) and the Gaza population be dissarmed..

Everyone should be entitled to defend themselves...

Because it uses these weapons to target Israeli civilian population.. And their own civilians as well..
When hamas is gone all blockades will be off I guess..

Israel started this well before Hamas was elected,
so whats changed now???

BTW, I think if you check,
more Gaza citizens have been killed than Israeli...

So maybe Israel needs to be dissarmed and a blockade put in place..

See how they like it...

I'm a very vocal critic of Israel. But this is a move in the right direction for them.

I applaud Israel's apparent beginning steps to a return to sanity.

My compliments to Israel.

Deeds not words. We'll see if it's not just lip service and appeasement.

I bet the first time something happens...it'll be on again. Have we been here before?

Too little to late.

Lets refuse to except goods from iserail untill the blocade is removed and it's time Ford was given the same treatment met out to Toyota because america is feeding the zionists in iserail by taking personal bribes and then giving tax payers monry to iserail.

Two can play at economic warfare and it's time for uncle sam to remove the nukes it gave iserail and to start being a bit more friendly towards it's other freinds that are not bribing congress members.

The nine killded speak no lies

Two sides (and two sets of those books too) to every story. Some food for thought...

Peace, Propoganda and the Promised Land

It's good to see Israel doing such a thing. Small gestures go a long way in that part of the world.

It's not what we want, but ultimately a step in the right direction.

No it didn't.. It started it after hamas was elected.
And it has nothing to do with hamas being elected or not either, as even if hamas was not elected the weapon smuggling or shipments would go to them.

Israel has killed more civilians, but it never targeted civilians. Hamas chooses to fight inside its population centers and not out in the open.
Also Israel told Gaza civilians to get out of the conflict area during the cast lead operation, in order to create an area for them to fight hamas with no civilian casualties. They dropped fliers, they called people's phones and sent them text messages.
And again, it isn't Israel's fault that hamas chooses to fight within Gaza.

So that's the difference- hamas targets civilians, and Israel does not.
A hamas soldier thinks that killing civilians and dying will get him to heaven.
An Israeli soldier thinks the killing civilians and dying will get him to hell.

This video is extremely one sided, and some of it is deliberately skewed and misleading.. Non the less it's very interesting to watch.
But a lot has changed in the last 5 years (Arafat's death was a big part of it).

Seeing this I get how people see Israel as nothing more then brutes and murderers.. This is definitely misleading.

It may be one-sided but it's the other side. And a lot of people know nothing about the other side, particularly those stuck on the Palestinians attacking Israel "for no reason."

That's great news! At least give Israel the benefit of the doubt.
