    (1) Why are Israeli leaders actively sabotaging any peace process that may end in a two state solution, something that is largely, according to analysts from ALL parts of the political spectrum, the best end-game for Israel because of the demographic struggle to retain a Jewish identity? (2) Why wouldn't the IDF set up a security checkpoint in Gaza, accept ALL aid after inspection from WHEREVER, and then (somewhat subtly) stop giving aid in the amounts donated by other countries since the minimum aid required would be met. This would make it so other countries like Iran cannot break the siege (there is no reason to, the aid is being let in and distributed by Israel in accordance with International conventions - perhaps even checked for distribution by the UN officials) and, in addition, reduce the Israeli responsibility for this welfare territory. I get that the reaction of the Knesset is meant to be along the lines of deterrence, but ask yourselves: do you find yourself having to defend Israel more or less after the flotilla raid?
