can someone please explain the rationale for this position? if these supplies are badly needed, as everyone seems to assume, wouldn't the priority be to get them in ASAP? indeed, isn't that the whole point of breaking the blockade, to make the statement that the situation in gaza is dire etc? how does the release of the few remaining detainees, who will get visits from the red cross, get fed etc justify depriving children from these supplies (unless perhaps they aren't so baldy needed?)?
