Here is what PCHR, the Palestinian "rights" group wrote about Gaza:
As the Christmas holidays near, we at PCHR would like to extend our warmest wishes for a holiday season of peace and love, rest and merriment! In spite of the ongoing siege imposed on Gaza...
The UNRWA and various others complain about the siege as well.
As we showed previously, the Gaza "siege" features full grocery stores. A visitor to YouTube will find dozens of videos "documenting" the "humanitarian crisis" caused by the "siege of Gaza" or "Gaza Blockade." Of course, journals all tell the same story. But here is the real story. This video shows the effects of the lack of food and the fuel shortage on the poor unfortunate people of Gaza:
If you cannot see the above, click the link: Israeli blockade of Gaza http://www.road90.com/watch.php?id=dx7iNRR9Dw. Full market stalls? Vegetables? Meat? That is supposed to be a blockade? Cars driving around? Where is the fuel shortage?? Where are the starving children? The fuel shortage used to be in the USA until the price of oil went down, much to the chagrin of the Gulf states. The starving children are probably in Darfur, but nobody cares about them at all.
The real story of the "Gaza siege" is simple. Hamas took power illegally in Gaza and refuses to participate in the peace process. It announces that it will never recognize Israel. It refuses to allow EU inspectors to operate the Rafah terminal, and it is pouring rockets into Israel every day. Consequently, the international community, and not just Israel, are supposedly boycotting Hamas. Hamas are also holding Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit, whom they kidnapped while he was minding his own business on the Israeli side of the border.
Supposedly, the international community are boycotting Hamas, but not really. Tunnels built under the noses of the not-too-watchful Egyptians allow Palestinians to smuggle in large quantities of increasingly sophisticated arms. There is no shortage of rocket fuel in Gaza either.
This year the Palestinian Authority got $3 Billion in aid. The "moderate" West-Bank based Palestinian Authority authority protests the "Gaza siege" in "solidarity" with its "Palestinian brothers" in Gaza, the same "brothers" who sliced up Fatah operatives into steaks and sent them to their families. And as much as half of that $3 billion goes to Gaza to pay the salaries of Palestinian Authority employees. Many of these "employees" moonlight as members of the Popular Resistance Committees and other groups, and lob rockets into Israel. The aid comes from the EU and the United States. A great business idea. Why throw away your money on Bernard Madoff schemes and AIG when you can use it to finance rocket fire on Sderot and Ashqelon? Thanks to your generosity, the Hamas rockets can now reach Ashdod and Beersheva as well. This Christmas, thanks to your governments, you gave the very best.
So dear EU and USA donors, thank you from Afik Zahavi (age 4), Dorit Benissian (age 2) and all the other evil Zionist settlers in Sderot who have been killed, maimed or terrorized thanks to funding of the Palestinian Authority and apologists for the poor starving
terroristsmilitants of Gaza.
Egypt and the United States are pressing Israel not to start a large scale military operation in Gaza to end the rocket fire. But they have run into a small snag, since the peace loving Hamas and their associates are continue to lob rockets and mortars into Israel in between declarations of peaceful intent - a slight impediment to Gaza truce efforts
Please make certain people know the truth about the "Gaza siege:"
* There is no hunger or humanitarian crisis in Gaza.
* The "blockade" such as it is, can end any time that Hamas releases kidnapped soldier Gilad Shalit, revokes the genocidal Hamas Charter and agrees to recognize the right of Israel to exist and to negotiate peace with Israel.
* EU and USA financial contributions are being used to maintain a lawless, genocidal extremist regime that persecutes Christians and is engaged in terrorism against Israel.

Comr on, just be fair. Stop this ongoing tragedy. Be legal for once. Go back home to Israel and leave Palestine once and for all.

the world doesn't care about human rights-it's just a load of camel fodder; as you mentioned Darfur and nobody cares. But when it concerns Jews and power, when it's about Jews being able to stand with other people/nations on an equal footing, the Jew-hatred of the world oozes and runs out of the pores.
