WINDOW DRESSING THE BLOCKADE OF GAZA | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED

WINDOW DRESSING THE BLOCKADE OF GAZA

As Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu prepares for a “kiss and make up” session at the White House tomorrow, Israel’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced a new list of items that will be banned from entering the Gaza Strip. The decision comes after weeks of international pressure following the Israeli raid on a Gaza aid flotilla, and seems to be meant to appease the Obama administration.

But the new policy amounts to nothing more than window-dressing, and will do little for the people of Gaza. Minus some cosmetic changes, the blockade policy of “economically strangling” Gaza stays the same.
