Gaza occupied by Israel? There is one Israeli in Gaza, Shalit. All other Jews have vacated, (22 settlements to the army brigades). Yes, Israel has sealed the borders..to avoid guerrillas entering and capturing soldiers or civilians and worse, bombing them. The boycott only includes dual use products and weapons. That is a fact. The Gazas are not . their problem is high birth rates and lack of their own ingenuity (for employment) Its basically a depressed area. But look at it prior to the 67 War for comparisons. I agree and disagree with the author. Israel should fully disengage..while making sure more lethal weapons are not given to Hamas. Let the flotiilla pass, its moot now. But watch for any increase in rockets (Katys, Fahrs, Grads, Velvels, etc( or movement by foreign troops (Iran, Syria, Hez, etc.). Israel's best recourse: bomb them or retake parts of the Strip.
