It has no purpose. We have to examine the policy that led to the blockade and reverse it. That mistaken policy was to exit Gaza and let it fall into the hands of terrorists. Ending the blockade will not solve the porblem. I believe Hamas when they say their goal is to finish Israel. That being so, there is no concession to Hamas that will satisfy them short of suicied. Rather the policy that got us here should be reversed. We have to reenter Gaza and establish Jewish communities and grow them till all of Gaza is Jewish. With regards to the arabs living there they will find some accomodations elsewhere and disappear from out lives. To enter Gaza and fight a limited war as in Cast Lead and not create Jewish communities is the reason we are now being attacked.
