"so you would like to starve a whole population." - maverick Yes they would. If even a significant portion of the Palestinians were blood thirsty terrorists Israel would have a far worse security problem that it does. Thankfully the majority of Israelis are not cold blooded killers. Livni is wise and prudent. There is only disadvantage for Israel in a humanitarian disaster in Palestine. Moreover, there is a clear moral imperative to prevent it. The deliberate creation of death and suffering of innocent individuals is beneath civilized humans. The evil spirited people on this forum wish Israel to be no better than Sudan. Shame.
