..what other solution has Israel.? From a security point of view. No more bus bombings. No more murders in the Mall. Had Hamas not decided to fire missiles into Israel, then there would have been no siege. Yet,Israel does supply electricity and certain other essentials and allows hundreds of truly sick patients into Israel for hospital care. Yes, to us all, outside Israel, we disagree in principal with said blockade, so do many in Israel. Again, the Hamas Charter has provoked anger and certain distress, which has caused said collective punishment. Only through some major retractions and goodwill will Israel sit down with Hamas, then again, Hamas is led by Tehran. In essence, that is the major stumbling block. Good day from snowy Swiss Alps.
