The real reason the baby died was because those supposed to have taken care of him did not make sure that fuel was rerouted from less important uses. or are we to assume that everything in Gaza had already stopped wrking. It was Hamas who stopped buying fuel, wouldn't allow any to come from Israel. A possible xcenario is that tbe event never actually happened, but the inventive Arabs had a thought of what might happen if the machinery running the respirator ran out of fuel. Alternately the Arabs allowed the baby to die to make propaganda from it, resulting in scoriation of israel, or at very least, an outpouring of free fuel or/and money from the West. a not uncommon part of Arab motives for anything.
