The blockade imprisons 1.5 million people, forcing them to live in poverty and misery. Every day that the blockade exists is a new attack on Gazans. The armistice treaty was violated on 4 November by an Israeli commando raid into Gaza killing a number of Palestians. The subsequent rockets against Israeli civilians are a crime (e.g. see the Goldstone report), but should not be misconstrued as the initiating aggression. Ian Kellys remarks are in this respect too biased.
