    An "extended" naval blockade reduces "Hamas controlled Gaza" to something less than human. Instead of liberty, they are being treated like caged animals. There is some truth that Hamas have been trigger happy with it's rockets. But the only way to remove such a threat is to heal the terrorists seeking the destruction of the State of Israel. There must be a common "well" from which both Israel and Hamas draws from. A "well" that is inclusive and not exclusive. "Seek yee first the kingdom of God!"
