    If it was suh a side show, why are the Israeli military in the highest state of readiness? Why all the threats about punishment by the governement spokesman? anyway, preventing civilians from living normal lives as a punsihment for its leaders is cruel and injust. And israelis should by now understand that it just doesn't work. Did they release Shalit? no. Did they give up their right to violent resistence against the occupation? no. Did they offer a just peace with Israel? no. Things only got worse: the hatred among the Palestinians of Gaza has only increased, the safety of Israelis has gotten worse, the weapons Israel tried to stop got into Gaza anyway, the international standing of Israel in the world has gotten far worse.... Now who can continue to claim that the closure is necessary or anything remotely close to a success?
