    Group punishment is clearly against international law. If you calculate the bare minimum a population needs to stay alive, clearly the sector of the population with lower income, influence, etc. will receive less. For years, for example, the Gaza population was denied toilet paper, female sanitary products, spagetti (Arabs eat more pasta than Italians. UN doctors using scientific methods measured levels od child malutrition in Gaza at about 37%. Whenever I think of Gaza, the Warsaw Ghetto comes to my mind. While you are so indignant, why don't you round up any surviving survivors of Warsaw, and put them on trial for "possessing unregistered weapons", "discharge of firearms in public places", and "rationing violations". Wir brauchen Ordnung! Already Israeli politicians and high-ranking IDF officers have to be careful traveling in western Europe, for fear of arrest for violating international norms. When Palestine gets "observer state" status in the UN, they will probably bring many cases before the International Court of Justice in the Hague. Israel is busily de-legitimizing itself.
