"The economic embargo, which has brought severe distress to the inhabitants of Gaza, has not brought down Hamas, nor has it freed kidnapped soldier Gilad Shalit." - Haaretz This is obvious, but are those the ACTUAL motives for the blockade or just rationalizations? IF those were the goals, then their failure should have led to a reassessment of that failure and an altered policy to achieve those goals. But what if thee real - if subliminal - objective is to inflict suffering upon Palestinians in retaliation for suffering inflicted upon Israelis? "The siege has only damaged Israel's image and led to accusations that it has shirked its humanitarian responsibilities in Gaza under international law." - Haaretz Easily dealt with, just call all criticism 'Anti-Semitism." Why use reason when emotion is so much easier to manipulate?
