    ...but you apparently do not. Practically on the day Hamas was elected, in the free and fair elections that the U.S. insisted in, and before any rockets fell, Israel imposed a total blockade on Gaza. The blockade -- which is an Act of War -- was imposed BEFORE the violence, and for purely political reasons. Every Israeli with a brain knows this, the people of Gaza know this -- why don't you? And a blockade -- that hurts and damages every woman and child that lives under it -- is a form of collective punishment. And collective punishment is ... you guessed it... a war crime. So maybe, when Hamas was elected, we should have thought of all this, and tried to set up a dialogue, instead of a blockade. It's the blockade that brings the rockets, booby.
