    R: "If Israel accepts that it is an occupying power, it gets to keep the airport and seaport closed, control the border of Gaza ..." YES R: "In return, it accepts its obligations as an occupying power and provides food, electricity and water" YES R: "It appears that that is what it is already doing." NO. It refuses to accept that this is an OBLIGATION and, therefore, does only enough to prevent war crimes charges being levelled against her. Everything else has to be supplied by humanitarian and foreign aid, even tho it is rightfully an ISRAELI responsibility. R: "Sounds to me like Israel should like being an occupying power over Gaza." Wrong. The "desirability" of continued occupation is directly proportional to Israeli desire for land. Pure, selfish greed, my friend; Israel WANTS WB land, so it maintains a presence. It doesn't WANT Gazan land, so it prefers strangling it from the outside. It's easier, and less costly in manpower and money.
