SDHD's Argument: 1) Here is a territory that is not occupied. 2) An army blockades it. 3) That blockade does not amount to an occupation. That argument when applied to Gaza is fatally flawed, precisely because (1) is incorrect. Johnboy's Argument: 1) Gaza was occupied by Israel in 1967. 2) Israel therefore established its authority over Gaza 3) Israel must discharge that authority (it must go to Someone Else) before Israel ceases to be the occupying power. 4) Deciding to BLOCKADE the Gaza Strip does not amount to Israel "discharging" its authority over Gaza. Far. From. It. A prison warden has NOT discharged the legal responsibilities he has towards his prisoners merely by ordering his guards out of the prison grounds and up into the watchtowers. Far. From. It. His actions are an ABROGATION of his legal responsibilities, and not a RELINGUISHMENT. The same is true of Israel's actions in 2005.
