Dave, I tried to read Trevor Norwitz letter.... but he lost me when he tried to argue that Gaza wasn't still occupied by Israel. While it pains me to use this comparison, its like white South Africans (the apartheid years) claiming that the inhabitants of the bantustans regions weren't citizens of South Africa proper. Israel has control or influence on all ports of enter into Gaza. They even control much of the utilities that provide electricity, water, gas, etc. The IDF controls the airspace above Gaza, and its ships patrol its coast. I'm sorry but how can that not be a "Occupying Power"?
