I too disagreed with some of the items on the list that Israel had previously barred but to not mention the thieving Hamas misfits that commandeer incoming goods and first stock up their warehouses with them and then charge exorbitant markups for the free donations is downright daylight robbery of the Palestinians in Gaza. When Hamas dug and reinforced their terror tunnels and then launched acts of war against Israel did you expect these brave men to hide there like cowards instead and leave their defenseless civilians above ground in more vulnerable positions to face the collateral wrath of the incoming IDF? Do you know how many Palestinians from Gaza are treated in proper Israeli hospitals and how many specialized surgeries are done freely for them? I've had enough of "a modicum of intelligence" to have actaully visited these areas and learned things firsthand, and you? Not having been there you have no clue how readily the Israelis would chip in and help build a beautiful PA State in this highly desirable section of the Mediterranean coastline if only Hamas would even consider true peace with the Jewish State instead of feeding daily on their hate-filled and misguided militant charter. Do you remember how the approved goods from the Turkish flotilla sat rotting and collecting dust at the border with Israel because Hamas' nose was out of joint and the World Cup happened to be on at the same time? Do you remember how the charlatan Arafat would accept incoming billions of sacrificial aid from the West and in return just put up a cheap wooden sign on some lots saying that this and that will be built there. Well no buildings came of it but the money was blown on instruments of death and destruction instead and also to stuff his Swiss accounts with. Please prove to us you really care about the Palestinians in Gaza and be honest in your appraisal of their derelict, dysfunctional leaders.
