Caesarea4 saidReally, yet another anti-Israel spam propaganda topic?
And from the guy who just paid lip service to not demonizing the other side?
Here are pictures from Gaza from this month:

the UN agency for Palestinian refugees yesterday called on bickering Palestinian factions to resolve a deepening electricity "crisis" in the Hamas-run Gaza Strip. ...John Ging, director of the UN Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) in Gaza [said] "It's an unbearable situation here at the moment, and it needs to be solved very quickly. It's a Palestinian problem, made by Palestinians, and causing Palestinian suffering. So let's have a Palestinian solution," he told reporters. ...Israel supplies about 70 percent of Gaza's power and Egypt provides five percent.
Talking is nothing. Show some action
TigerTim saidWell given that David Cameron put the Conservative Party into bed with some extreme [homophobic, anti-semitic] right wingers in the European Parliament, I'm not at all surprised that this sort of gaffe happens.
The status of Gaza is far from what it should be, but it should be noted that there have been significant movements from Israel to ease the restrictions--admittedly under considerable international pressure. Israel should go further, but it would be politically much easier for it to do so if there was some--any---positive movement from Hamas. They might accept the right of Israel to exist, for example, and commit to a two-state [or even one-state!] solution.
There is one seemingly very small thing they could do tomorrow which would ease tensions immeasurably: Free Gilad Shalit. It is high time.
David Cameron is not anti-Semitic because he calls Gaza Strip a Prison Camp.
1. Hamas exist all because of Israel's occupation.
2. Gaza is not even a country. So they have right to fight against occupation.
3. Why should Hamas recognize Israel, when Israel don't recognize them?
4. Over 300 innocent Palestinians civilians are trapped in Israeli prisons.
5. Hamas already recognize Israel within the 1967 borders before the Gaza war and siege.
