Israel is playing a very dangerous game by not allowing cement and reinforcing steel into Gaza. Some time later it will then demolish these houses because they are not built with proper safety standards. As it does in the West Bank and East Jerusalem under the pretense of lacking building permits after any effort at obtaining the same were aborted. That is why it will take many more flotillas to break the Gaza blockade. Palestine has a right to defend itself equal to Israel. There is no cause to prevent any imports and exports. Not even weapons.
