The need to preempt Iran and export gas to Egypt was the reason the government gave to push through its controversial plan for Israel's natural gas. Now, this reason may no longer exist.08:52 31.08.15 | 1 comments
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.
