The first question is the legality of the blockade..
I have seen no evidence to suggest it is legal.
Secondly, if the sole purpose is to stop weapons getting into Gaza then why does Israel ban livestock,pencils,paper and chocolate ??
Personally, I see no reason why ANYTHING is banned, even weapons.
Israel is allowed weapons on a grand scale for such a small country..
Also everyone blames Hamas yet as far as I'm aware Israel also restrict goods entering the West Bank, why??
