    ...You were the one who tried tell us that historically International laws were in place to protect civilians in siege warfare. I was the one to remind you that such laws are a very recent phenomenon. But now you are trying to lecture me on the topic and pretending that I disclaim such laws? OK, you can go on and pretend ... All I said was that: - such laws apply both ways and do not just favour your "poor Palestinians". - Israel is just restricting the re-supply of goods, it has not entirely prevented the entry of ANY goods. - Consequently, the Gazans are NOT starving. They are just being inconvenienced. - Israel's terms to ease the restrictions are NOT unreasonable. - What is unreasonable are the actions of the elected leaders of the Gazans (Hamas) who target Israeli civilians. - It is unreasonable to claim that Israel is committing genocide by defending it's own civilians from the Gazans. - It is also unreasonable to pretend that somehow Hamas has NOTHING to do with the people of Gaza. My recollection is that at the last democratic elections, the majority of Gazans voted for Hamas even though they knew that Hamas stood for war with Israel. Now Ron, do you think you could stick to the topic and debate what I am ACTUALLY saying rather than what you pretend I am saying?
