10 Errors of Gaza seige: 1. Israel should not have withdrawn from NE corner opposite Sderot, giving them permanent relief. 2. IDF should have permanently seized a 5 km wide strip of Gaza north of Rafah to the sea, blocking weapons smuggling. 3. Standard practice during and after war should have been 10 175mm heavy shells into Gaza for each rocket fired. 4. No construction aid in except for surrender of rockets 5. Total ban on shipping sugar, fertilizer into Gaza, and destroy all Gaza supplies of these (Kassam fuel) 6. No foreign "aid workers" or media allowed into Gaza. Period. 7. No UN cooperation unless they permit 3rd party and live video monitoring of UN facilities 8. Freeze Road Map "obligations" unless US effectively pressures Egypt to stop Iranian arms from entering Sinai. 9. Cut all Red Cross, phone, mail, family access to Arab prisoners until Shalit also gets these. 10. 15% tax on all foreign shipments to Gaza to benefit Sderot, compensate rocket victims. NO exports.
