Hamas may have told Israel it isn’t looking for another war in Gaza, but it’s clearly desperate to advance its attack tunnels. It’s also delighted to be sowing seeds of discontent and concern among the Israeli public.04:19 13.02.16 | 0 comments
Haaretz reporters, please do your homework. It is your job to tell the European left that this is NOT the way to bring peace to the region. The facts are simple and straight forward. Only an extremely small fraction of Israel's national economy relate to industries that are outside of the Green line. On the other hand, a very large percentage of the West Bank Palestinian economy relies on their interaction with Israel. Although such an embargo will indeed be an annoyance to Israel, it will have incredible repercussions to the Palestinians. There are those that argue that a contunued economic embargo of Gaza only serves to strengthen a radicalized Jihadist Hamas regime there. Is this what the Europeans want to happen to the West Bankt too, because there is no faster way to get there than to slap on these embargoes. PS: Arabs living in East Jerusalem need sewerage treatment too if it is not yet evident to the Dutch.
