The Israeli human rights group Gisha, which campaigns against Israel's Gaza blockade, fought a long legal battle to get the Israeli ministry of defence to release this document.

Dated from 2008 and entitled, Food Consumption in the Gaza Strip - The Red Lines, it is a detailed study of how many calories Palestinians needed to eat to avoid malnutrition.


How can Israel claim that it is not responsible for civilian life in Gaza - when it controls even the type and quantity of food that Palestinian residents of Gaza are permitted to consume?”



It breaks foods down into various categories including meat, dairy, vegetables and fruit.

Gisha says it explains the unusual restrictions which allowed some products such as cinnamon in, while others such as coriander were forbidden.

The "red lines" documents concluded that Israel needed to allow 106 lorryloads of supplies into Gaza every day to allow for the "daily humanitarian portion", which included basic food, medicine, medical equipment, hygiene products and agricultural inputs.

But Gisha says that during that time an average of only 67 lorryloads a day were allowed into Gaza.

This, the group says, compared to about 400 lorryloads which entered Gaza each day before the blockade was tightened in June 2007.

Israel's policy was summed up by Dov Weisglass, an adviser to Ehud Olmert, the Israeli Prime Minister, earlier this year. 'The idea is to put the Palestinians on a diet, but not to make them die of hunger,' he said. The hunger pangs are supposed to encourage the Palestinians to force Hamas to change its attitude towards Israel or force Hamas out of government.

Can you say "collective punishment"?

Israelis do LOTS OF STUDIES on nutritional habits and needs of all kinds of peoples----it is probably a leftover from the time the islamo nazi pigs imposed a GENERAL BOYCOTT on food imports into Israel The way they did it was they got ALL THE MECCAIST PIGS of the world to boycott any company that did business with Israel Lots of Giant food companies in the US could not do buisness meccaist cesspits if they had anything to do with Israel. Israel responded by stepping up production of bread, milk and eggs and by SUBSIDIZING them------and by this means they avoided the starvation tactic that the islamo nazi pigs had hoped for Since that time medical journals got full of all kinds of little studies about which groups eat what and what it does for them ------Arabs have a high fat diet------lots of "SAMNEH"-----(goat butter) ------they also have a high incidence of diabetes-----SEE----I read about it long ago and since-----usually pops up in the new england jounal of medicine probably "lancet" too---but that's a british rag

IMPORT CORIANDER into Gaza? what for? -----the stuff grows wild over there The stuff goes to seed easily too. sprinkle a few seeds on any ground----two weeks you have coriander leaves and three weeks you got seeds Cinnamon is a logical import

Because Habibi are you just confused or did you want to describe Iran as a "FASCIST" state?
