    Yep. Gaza is still under occupation by Israel. Want to explain to the people you have misled just why Egypt is not allowed to open it's common border with Gaza? Who controls Gaza's sea borders, airspace, what goes in what goes out? Are Gazans allowed to leave and re-enter Gaza as and when they like? Who holds the citizenship list of Gazans? Gil there may not be Israelis actually in Gaza (that we know of) but to say Israel is not in control of Gaza is disingenuous, and you know it. But I digress this thread is about the cowardice, the vanity and the sin of boycotting Israel. Which the Al-Ahram Group (apparently a powerful media group in Egypt. I must confess I have never heard of them) has decided to boycott Isral, in what Haaretz term as a massive boycott.
