    Israel is the legal occupying power in Gaza. It has the right to control ALL access to Gaza from outside. This is most clear, and most true under international law. Why then, as it demands the right of a Legal Occupying Power, does Israel refuse to perform the responsibilities of the Legal Occupying Power of Gaza? I did not create this dichotomy. The people of Gaza did not. Israel, the Legal Occupying Power in Gaza, which refuses to surrender that authority, is the single party which refuses to honor it's responsibilities as the Legal Occupying Power in Gaza. What nation can deny this? What happens if the people of Gaza announce that they are a nation because Israel refuses to exercise it's responsibilities as the Legal Occupying Power over Gaza? Israel has chosen a suicide course of action which cannot survive question. It is an insane course of action which cannot benefit Israel. It is, however, the course of action which israel has chosen. Israel's friends are helpless.
