Mr. Fox you say there is "no nearly genocidal" blockade of Gaza. The Israeli government agrees with you. It proudly brags to its critics that an average of 80 truckloads a day of international aid enters gaza. That in itself is almost an admission of genocide. According to the UN World Food Programme, Gaza with a population of 1.4 million requires daily 400 trucks of food just to meet basic nutritional needs. Israel also forbids entry of building materials, electrical appliances,spare parts for cars and machines, fabrics,threads, needles, candles, matches, mattresses, sheets, blankets, cutlery, crockery, cups, glasses, musical instruments, books, tea, coffee, sausages,and shoes. Article 33 of the 4th Geneva Convention discusses collective punishment and violation of the article is considered a war crime. If Israel continues to thumb its nose at the international community, that violation will probably end up being charged in the Hague.
