Gaza people elected Hamas democratically and freely, and Hamas agenda is simply to kill all Jews living in Israel. These free elections mean that "Gazans normal life" is (for 86% in polls) to try to kill all of us. Unless we see signs that Gaza government will start dealing with: ecology, education, economy and like matters of "normal life", to lift the blockade will simply be foolish. Its true that implementing a blockade, even if it only means filtering non-military items, is not nice, difficult to explain, and contradicts basic freedom values shared by all Israelis. But to die is worse.
