    There are those (the international community) who believe Israel is more responsible for the misery in Gaza than Hamas. Israel controls all points of entry and egress Israel claims it permits an average of 80 trucks a day of international aid to enter gaza. That is almost an admission of genocide. According to the UN World Food Program, Gaza population of 1.4 million requires daily 400 trucks of just food to meet basic nutritional needs. Israel also forbids entry of building materials, electrical appliances,spare parts for cars and machines, medical equipment, medicines, fabrics,threads, needles, candles, matches, mattresses, sheets, blankets, cutlery, crockery, cups, glasses, musical instruments, books, tea, coffee, sausages,and shoes. UN relief agencies report 80% of Gazans depend on meager trickle of Intl aid that Israel permits to enter; 450,000 (30%) of Gazans are without clean water. Human rights orgs say dozens have died in last 18 months waiting for permits to enter Israel.
