Why should Israel lift he blockade when no one is suggesting the same regarding the Arab Boycott of Israel or its business partners and suppliers? or the blockade of Cuba now in its 40+th yr? What about lesser restictions such as USA blocking cheap sugar imports from South Am.? How about the proposed NZ blockade of importation of Kosher chickens? Who are these moralist 'finger pointers' criticizing Israel acting in its own best interests as it sees fit? Who would know better what is in its best interests? These leaders and diplomates are just high minded hypocrites!!
