So let me ask you this. Have you and the rest of your country ever considered calling what the Egyptians are doing a war crime??? Are they not also blockading all of Gaza because Hamas is in power? I would consider this collective punishment. In fact, they are installing steel walls in the ground to enforce the blockade even more. So the next time an Egyptian leader visits England you guys should put an arrest warrant out for them. It's amazing how the finger is only pointed at the Israeli side of things, but never at anyone else involved. I'm sure Barak's statement was taken out of context. I'm also sure that things are a lot more complicated than it's because of 1 kidnapped soldier that they are doing this.
