This is absolute horse shit proffered by Keith on this issue. It's extreme Israeli propaganda and not the sort that is agreed to by all of the Israeli people.


Not horse shit, but a simple statement of fact.
The minimal blockade was in direct response to the missiles that, in blatant contravention of International Law, indiscriminately target and terrorise civilians including Palestinian Israelis and children.

There is no hard and fast commitment to stop the blockade, the attacks, or anything else Israel may decide to inflict on its much weaker neighbour.

If Ban Ki Moon decides to establish prosecution for Israel's imprisonment of the Palestinian people and condemn Israel's war crimes, then I could support him.

As it stands, the minimalism of the damage that is being inflicted on the Palestinians
is an Israeli ruse. Hamas will continue as long as the Palestinian people are caged animals in an open air Israeli prison.

I don't condone the violence inflicted by Hamas or the violence which is far worse by Israel.

But white-washing the Israeli position is tantamount to perpetrating the violence and
those who support Israel's recalcitrance are offering an ignorant appraisal of the actual situation. I have been accused of not having enough information but I'll turn that around
and accuse my accuser of the same misleading information.

"The blockade was the minimally aggressive response to the deadly, indiscriminate, murderous missiles that Gaza launched and continues to launch against the ordinary Jews and Arabs and terrified children within range."

This is absolute horse shit proffered by Keith on this issue. It's extreme Israeli propaganda and not the sort that is agreed to by all of the Israeli people.
As for Palestinian terrorized children, you can see their looks in the eyes as Israeli soldiers abuse and kill them that is if you bother to watch news programs that will show you the real pictures of what's going on there.

A "shoah" of sorts resembling a concentration camp where there are undoubtably
Palestinians on the verge of starvation because they can't make ends meet is taking
place.

The Secretary-General reiterates his call for an immediate cessation of indiscriminate rocket attacks by Palestinian militants targeting Israel and strongly condemns these actions.   He calls on Israel to exercise maximum restraint.   Both sides should do everything to avoid further escalation and must respect their obligations under international humanitarian law to ensure the protection of civilians at all times.

Because Gaza chooses to be at war with Israel, Israel is entitled to establish a blockade.
It is a perfectly legal response and complies with International Law provided humanitarian supplies are allowed, which they always have been.

The blockage is directed at the civilian population
It includes material essential for rebuilding homes deliberately destroyed by the Israelis and farming material necessary for growing produce, both for feeding families and for selling to supplement the family incomes. In addition, the Berlin Wall cuts through Palestinian land, separating the farmers from their crops, in other words, attempting to starve them into submission.
To deliberately target people who have nothing whatever to do with the fighting by such actions is to use them as human shields and is tantamount to a war crime - making the Israeli regime war criminals.
Both Amnesty and the U.N. have identified these actions as the cause of malnutrition in ten percent of Palestinian children.
You and Bobad have both confirmed that the Israelis are using Palestinian civilians as human shields - "there is no confusion - if you want a normal life - stop firing."
By supporting these actions you are supporting war crimes - deny that?

Don, WW2 Hisory.com
After the fall of France in June 1940, one stark fact was clear. Without the ability to receive large quantities of material from North America, Britain was doomed. This meant, of course, that the subsequent 'Battle of the Atlantic' was one of the most decisive battles of the entire conflict.

'Churchill himself said at the time,' says Professor David Reynolds, 'and certainly says in his memoirs, that he wasn't really afraid of invasion in 1940. He could imagine the possibility of big raids or something like that on the east coast, but a full scale invasion was less worrying to him than the biggest fear that he had all through the war, which was that Britain's sea lanes would be cut off, and that the country would eventually be starved into submission.

Don, there are no restrictions on food going in to Gaza, and have not been for over 2 years.
Even before that Israel ensured there was enough so that no-one starved.
The blockade was only imposed because of the rocket attacks.

From Daily Telegraph 2010.
Here is a summary of why Gaza is being blockaded, what is allowed in and out and whether the measures are working.

Why did Israel put the blockade in place?

Israel said it began the blockade to hold Hamas "responsible and accountable" for rocket attacks on Israeli towns.

The other point you made about rationing in Britain during the war is absolute nonsense, for two very good reasons.

1. Our parents went short to make sure we didn't. Child health didn't suffer, but I hardly ever saw a fat adult up to my sixth year.
2. Britain was a half agrarian half industrial country with over 11,000 miles of coastline and the German blockade was never close to being effective, so our food shortage never came close to the level imposed by Israel on Gaza.

They have inflicted vast damage and won't even allow materials for re-building to reach Gaza, and we've all seen the list of forbidden imports.

"And if they stopped firing all those missiles, there would be no blockade at all."

So you keep trying to convince us, but can you show me where the government of Israel has made that commitment plain to the Gazans.

It would be very simple:

"Cease the missiles = immediate withdrawal of the blockade".

"Enough food for all gets in to Gaza.
The malnutrition is the result of poverty, as in Egypt that Gaza was once part of.
"

Not disputed Keith, but the poverty is imposed by Israel blocking exports, impeding imports and destroying the capacity to earn as a direct result.

Not the same as poverty due to the inadequacies of their own government, as was the case with Egypt.

Do not try to blame Israel for all the poverty in the Middle East.
Gaza is no worse than Egypt, Yemen, Jordan etc.
Gaza would have much less poverty if they stopped shooting Kazam missile by the dozen, at $500 each.
And if they stopped firing all those missiles, there would be no blockade at all.

"Indicators from the 2009 data showed that 30 percent of Upper Egyptians suffered from caloric deprivation, and 49 percent had poor dietary diversity.

Almost a third of Upper Egyptians suffer from iron, zinc, or vitamin A deficiency. Iron deficiency leads to loss of attention and low productivity, which impinges on education and work. "Anaemia mainly affects children, because their bodies have higher demands," said Hafiz.

A lack of vitamin A may lead to night blindness, also known as nyctalopia, while zinc deficiency may cause severe diarrhoea and pneumonia. These two health problems are common among children in the governorate of Minya, according to Mohamed of Minya University.

"This is a vicious circle, because diarrhoea and pneumonia weaken the immune system, and a weak immune system leads to more diarrhoea and pneumonia," he added. "

From the same source JC just quoted:-

"A recent report [pdf] by Save the Children and Medical Aid for Palestinians found that, in addition, anaemia is widespread, affecting over two-thirds of infants, 58.6 percent of schoolchildren, and over a third of pregnant mothers.

I mean, don't those figures make you want to do something for those mothers and children? Wouldn't they melt anyone's heart?

Although, under international pressure, the Israeli government eased its blockade slightly in 2010, and foodstuffs are no longer interdicted, it still limits imports into Gaza, and its wide-ranging ban on exports has thrown Palestinians into unemployment at Depression levels, imperilling their ability to afford food even when it is available.
"

That might just be the explanation of the fact that there is food in then shops and also that surplus food is being exported.

It highlights the dangers of drawing conclusions from one visit, without considering possible explanations, and indeed medical evidence.

Whether you starve a man by food deprivation, or by destroying his means of making a living so that he can't buy food, the end result is the same. Slow and deliberate starvation!

"The small amount of aid allowed in, while better than nothing, is a pitiful gesture in the face of such an overwhelming humanitarian crisis," noting that insufficient amounts of food, fuel and medical supplies were delivered.[61] "
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Effects_of_the_Gaza_War

Mass unemployment, extreme poverty and food price rises caused by shortages have left four in five Gazans dependent on humanitarian aid.
http://www.amnesty.org/en/news-and-updates/suffocating-gaza-israeli-blockades-effects-palestinians-2010-06-01

The blockade has produced massive unemployment and poverty, lack of potable water, widespread food insecurity, startlingly high levels of anemia, and the stunting of poorer childrens' growth.
The food blockade had real effects. About ten percent of Palestinian children in Gaza under 5 have had their growth stunted by malnutrition.

I have provided plenty of hard evidence to show there is no starvation.
You can not show anything to say there is starvation, because it is a lie.

Gaza has poor people, as does every country.
Do you blame Israel for all the poverty in the world.

There is more than enough food.
Are you accusing Hamas of allowing their poor to starve?
I do not make that accusation.

It's only sicko extremists like you who would attempt to differentiate between the extreme hardship now being experienced by the poorest families, and starvation - all described in reports put out by organisations such as Amnesty - read them and claim they are lying, but don't you dare try to say that they are being reported.
It is the same sicko attitude that has attempted to claim that the chemicals used by the Israelis which have inflicted the horrific injuries on men, women and particularly on children, and which have so graphically illustrated in many reports - are not chemical weapons.
If any of this gives you a shred of comfort, please continue to make your claims; it only serves to underline what a monstrous regime you and your fellow zealots are supporting.
At one time, when you were getting no support, would invent it by faking an identity; since having been warned off you now are claiming support from others where you have none.
Extreme hardship, verging on poverty, is being experienced by people who have been made homeless, are unable to sell their produce or feed their families from their crops because they have been deliberately cut off from their land.
There is no MASS poverty at present, but should the proposals being considered by the regime and its ultra nationalist friends be put into place, there certainly will be
And your solution - give up to the hostage takers - "come out with your hands up".
No civilised country agrees to the demands of a regime that takes an entire people hostage and attempts to starve and humiliate them into submission

Lying turd Jim?
Misquoting you?

On Nov 7 at 6.52AM, in reply to my "No starvation, no shoah, no holocaust" you said, "Nobody has suggested that any of these thigs exist at present "

So, it was not me that lied.
No families are starving Jim.
I have shown that there is plenty of food, and food to spare.
Why do you twats believe all the lies fed to you by the Jihadists?

Don.
And we're to believe that the day the rockets stop, Israel is going to stop bulldozing buildings, controlling food supplies and building fences across Palestinian farms, cutting them off?

They stopped all those things years ago.
There are no Israeli bulldozers in Gaza.
There are no Israelis in Gaza.
Whenever the rockets stop, so do Israels counter attacks.

In the towns of Southern Israel, all the schools are closed as families have to cower never far from the shelters where they have to sleep.
And you twats expect Israel to be gracious in return.
Amazingly, they actually are!
They temper the blockade so that the hate filled wannabe child murderers can fire their evil missiles on full stomachs.
Extraordinary.

"Even Jim has told us that."
Don't you dare misquote me you lying turd - I said there were families who were already starving (I didn't bother adding homeless due to having their houses razed to the ground)
I also said that should the Nazi-type 'calorie counting exercise be put into operation there will be wholesale starvation \mong the porer sections of the population)
Why do you bother taking part in these discussions if you can't put forward an honest argument?

They're going to stop all settlement of Palestinian land and allow Hamas to govern, as it was elected to do?

They're going to retire within their own borders and stay there?

And Santa Claus is alive and well and living in Lapland with a bunch of elves!

And, Bobad, if we don't believe it, how likely are the Gazans to do so?

Of course, if the IDF withdrew and the blockade was lifted......?

But the fanatics who govern Israel are even more intransigent than the Palestinian rebels.

Looks like this will run and run.

".... they can, whenever they choose."

As can Hamas, whenever they choose, embrace peace with Israel by ceasing their hostilities towards it which would give Israel no reason to continue it's blockade....but you know it and choose to ignore that fact as do the other posters who choose to only criticize Israel's actions without mention of the reasons for those actions.

"Jewish atheism refers to atheism as practiced by people who are ethnically, and to some extent culturally, Jewish. Because Jewishness encompasses ethnic as well as religious components, the term "Jewish atheism" does not necessarily imply a contradiction."

If you claim this special merger of nationality and religion for Jews, which applies to no other race/religion on the planet, how do you explain American Jews, European Jews, Russian Jews, and a host of other Jews who did not emigrate from Israel, and are not Israeli, while you conflate Israeli with Jewish.

Seems that you want to have your cake and eat it and given the settlements, the bulldozing of homes etc. it would seem you also want a slice of cake belonging to others.

Israelis would not accept being held to ransom by a foreign power controlling their borders and food supply, and taking over chunks of their land. Why do they expect the Palestinians to accept it?

Israel of course, is the one with nukes and monstrously superior firepower, so why are they surprised that the sovereign state held in thrall to their whims and mood changes, uses whatever pathetic means they possess to retaliate.

This thread, like so many others, is concentrated on the wrong question. It isn't the fact that Israel is starving Gazans, it is that they can, whenever they choose.

Which of you would live under that threat and NOT want to fight back?

Gaza militants launched 10 rockets into southern Israel by midday Monday, including one that struck the yard of a house, the military said. The barrage ramps up pressure on the Israeli government to stage a large-scale operation aimed at stopping the persistent attacks.

No injuries were reported and there was no immediate Israeli retaliation. But earlier in the day, Israeli aircraft struck three militant sites in Gaza.

According to the military's count, more than 110 rockets have hit Israel since Saturday.

The violence threatens to explode into a major confrontation ahead of Israel's Jan. 22 elections.

Israeli leaders have warned they won't tolerate continued assaults and have threatened a more forceful response.

"The world must understand that Israel will not sit idly in the face of attempts to attack us," Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Sunday.

Defence Minister Ehud Barak has said Israel's upcoming elections will not deter Israel from acting militarily.

UN World Food Programme helping Gaza by exporting its surplus food to West Bank Palestinians.
http://www.wfp.org/node/3465/4847/310191

and
"Biscuits From Gaza Feed West Bank Schoolkids
The nutritious datebars eaten by children at schools in the West Bank used to be shipped in from Egypt or even further afield. Now they are now being produced much closer to where they are needed: in Gaza. The result is that the local economy is being supported and kids in the West Bank are eating biscuits produced by fellow Palestinians. The first convoy of datebars recently made the crossing from Gaza."

In a 2006 patriotism survey, 56% of Israeli Arabs were not proud of their citizenship and 73% were not ready to fight to defend the state, but 77% said that Israel was better than most other countries and 53% were proud of the country's welfare system. Eighty-two percent said they would rather be a citizen of Israel than of any other country in the world.

The Independent 2009
a second Palestinian "Nakba", or catastrophe – this one at hands of the Arab governments. "Marginalised, deprived of basic political and economic rights, trapped in the camps, bereft of realistic prospects, heavily armed and standing atop multiple fault lines," a report by the International Crisis Group (ICG) in Lebanon recently observed, "the refugee population constitutes a time bomb."

The fact that the divided Palestinian political leadership is silent about the mistreatment of the refugees by Arab states does not make such behaviour any less reprehensible – or less dangerous. Some 250,000 Palestinians were chased out of Kuwait and other Gulf States to punish the Palestinian political leadership for supporting Saddam Hussein. Tens of thousands of Palestinian residents of Iraq were similarly dispossessed after the second Gulf war.

In 2001, Palestinians in Lebanon were stripped of the right to own property, or to pass on the property that they already owned to their children – and banned from working as doctors, lawyers, pharmacists or in 20 other professions. Even the Palestinian refugee community in Jordan, historically the most welcoming Arab state, has reason to feel insecure in the face of official threats to revoke their citizenship. The systematic refusal of Arab governments to grant basic human rights to Palestinians who are born and die in their countries – combined with periodic mass expulsions of entire Palestinian communities – recalls the treatment of Jews in medieval Europe

There is no starvation in Gaza.
Even Jim has told us that.
The whole world media reports from Gaza, including Al Jazeera and other Arab networks, Russia, China and Scandinavia.
None have reported starvation.
Numerous international aid and welfare organisations and NGOs are there.
None are involved in emergency feeding.
UN aid and welfare agencies are there.
None say there is starvation.
I have given quotes from Red Cross and Hamas both stating in terms that there is no starvation.
It is just propaganda Strinsinger.
