    Gaza has new shopping malls, restaurants and supermarkets, I don't know if they are having a humanitarian crisis but they are in way better shape than Liberia, Somalia, Darfur and Zimbabwe.

    Getting food on the dole is not the problem with the siege,

    BTW, settlers are not protected persons according to international law.

    International law does not define "civilians" as protected persons. Occupied people are classified as combatants and non combatants. Only the non combatants are protected.

    The occupying power is called the occupying power and no protected person status is mentioned.

    Settlers may be civilians but they are not protected persons.

    According to JewHook93

    The outdoors prison camp called Gaza is basically a luxury paradise..

    And the Palestinian inmates should be happy to be allowed to live there. :cuckoo:

    I checked the Red Cross website and couldn't find anything saying that there was no crisis in Gaza. Is this some secret document or are we supposed to take Israel media's word?

    Considering the entire gaza strip has been evacuated, who are these "settlers' you are talking about? These are Israeli citizens on the right side of the 1967 line, so how can you consider them settlers?

    Shopping Mall in Gaza

    [​IMG]

    Korean restaurant in Gaza

    [​IMG]

    Supermarket in Gaza

    [​IMG]

    Waterpark in Gaza

    Now I am not saying everything in Gaza is peaches and cream but this doesn't look like a humanitarian crisis to me, a humanitarian crisis is like Darfur, Liberia, Somalia, Zimbabwe etc etc

    The 1967 line is an armistice line not a border. Places like Sderot are inside Palestinian borders. Sderot is an Israeli settlement.
