    Who does this make responsible for whatever suffering going on in Gaza?
    Will Turkey now denounce Hamas for repressing Gaza? Will the UN call for an investigation into Hamas and demand that they allow humanitarian aid through?

    Or will everyone still blame Israel?

    There was a comic in today's paper that pretty much summed up this whole situation.

    It is not a compromise when Israel is forced to give up something for nothing.

    As has been clearly and directly stated by the activists aboard the Freedom Flotilla - the point is to end the blockade, not funnel aid directly to Israel so that it may continue to hold Gaza in a stranglehold.

    Forcing Israel to end its illegal siege of Gaza, which inflicts a draconian collective punishment on a civilian population of 1.5 million people - denying them their basic human rights including unhindered access to food, water, medicine, electricity, work, education, and their freedom of movement - this is not called "giving up something for nothing." It's called "justice."

    Did I call that right or what?

    Hamas refused the aid from the flotilla, so if the point is to get this aid to the civilians in Gaza, why are you not condemning Hamas for not allowing it in?

    Read it again. The point is to end the blockade.

    If Hamas would say black is white and white is black, their apologists would agree to that as well. Tons of food and medicines, which are supposedly desperately needed, will go to waste, and you find nothing wrong with that? Perhaps they aren't so desperately needed after all! That's like saying the inmates of Auschwitz would refuse food because of some principle...:confused:

    Well then....obviously if Gaza has some fancy restaurants (never mind if no one can afford to eat there) and one swimming pool for 1.5 million people, then the Israeli blockade can't be so bad, and the entire world is lying.

    So by your logic, conditions in the Warsaw Ghetto couldn't be so bad - since they had a symphony orchestra.

    I posted a fact, Hamas is refusing to allow the humanitarian aid from the flotilla into Gaza. Your response? The aim of the flotilla is to break the blockade because it is bad for the civilians in Gaza, and they are starving because Israel is cruel.

    I post evidence that the conditions in Gaza are not as bad as Turkey, and other Palestinian sympathizers, portray them. Your response? It wasn't that bad in the Warsaw Ghetto either, because they had a concert.

    If this works for you, fine.

    So that Hammas can begin sending more rockets and suicide bombers back into the streets of Isreal.

    They (Hammas) dont give a rats ass about what happens to the "Palestinians".

    Israel has the right to defend itself with a blockade, just like America did during the Cuban missile crisis.

    I am sure that there are many people in gaza who could form an orchestra.

    However I doubt that the people in the Warsaw Ghetto would have refused humanitarian aid. Nor do I suspect that the germans would have allowed anything that would have been considered military into the ghetto.
