Why I hate the mainstream media...
Here's a report from Reuters which is totally ridiculous.
Israel's blockade of the Gaza Strip has created the worst humanitarian crisis since the Israeli occupation began in 1967, aid and rights groups said on Thursday.is that it? Is that what's behind the crisis??? Could it possibly be the failure of the Palestinians to build a better life for themselves? Or, why they always invest in bullets and bombs instead of infrastructure???
But get this quote:
"It's grossly disproportional," Geoffry Binder, an expert on international humanitarian law in London, told Reuters.A few small rockets? Gee, over 2,500 rockets fired into Israel - all aimed at civilians??? What response would like the Israelis to take? One shudders at his possible answer.
"What we're dealing with here is a few rockets coming from presumably one small corner of Gaza. And the response is the blockade and the destruction of hundreds of lives and the impoverishment of the whole area."
