And I say the blockade of Gaza's seaport has to be withdrawn if Israel is ever to move to a normal existence........How do you expect any people to stop doing nasty things like firing rockets if they are given no chance to carry on normal commercial activity and prosper?

Israel promised to wind down the blockade and didn't....Result Hamas renewed its rocket fire....With the result that Israel began its latest bout of killing and maiming.


Israel had a choice...It could move to normalisation gradually in exchange for similar gradual reduction in rocket fire or it could escalate the conflict resulting in thousands been killed and injured.......You obviously think the latter was better.
