    Hamas takes advantage of the fact its people are suffering? Yes they do but how is Israel not doing the same? While Palestinians are suffering humiliation and poverty, Israel is taking advantage of its position to continue to undermine peace and build settlements on land that is supposed to be exchanged for peace. As for this inquiry, all you have done is criticize the Goldstone report because some of the judges/investigators were anti-zionist but how is Israel's own inquiry legitimate then considering many if not all the judges will be pro-zionist? As for the items now waiting for delivery into Gaza; the mention of toys is interesting because as far as I am aware, Israel does not allow toys into Gaza as well as other items that seem to be banned simply because they add to people's enjoyment of life. You talk of Hamas harming its people yet Israel is doing just the same to them. Banning chocolate along with other foodstuffs that are deemed too "luxurious" for the Palestinians of Gaza. Hypocrisy indeed! In turn the attempt to tone down hypocrisy has just created more of it.
