    "as a humanitarian response to the needs of Gazans, as a positive declaration of intentions", not only to gain credit in the eyes of the Palestinians, but even more importantly to undermine Hamas by gaining the respect and positive sentiment of the Palestinians. And if indeed there Gazan people were actually in a position to remove Hamas from there midst; THIS would have done more to motivate their doing so any blockade could ever have done. Unfortunately, Israel's racist tendency and its heavy-handed mentality is apparently not capable of understanding this simple element of human nature. And so now, the blockade has proven all for naught - and the opportunity for Israel to improve its image, both with the international community and in the eyes of the Palestinians, has been shot! eeYO-oh, aduhhh!
