Israeli Occupation Authority still banning entry of 3,500 commodities into Gaza

Palestine Information Center – 28/06/2010

GAZA: MP Jamal Al-Khudari, the head of the popular committee against the siege, has said that the Israeli occupation authority (IOA) was still barring the entry of 3500 commodities into the Gaza Strip.

He said in a report published on Sunday that the IOA allowed only 10% of goods that were previously banned from entering Gaza, describing the IOA talk about easing the siege as mere propaganda and means to deceive the world and is contrary to what is happening on the ground.

The lawmaker noted that in the first week the IOA opened two commercial crossings out of four, which were all completely closed, then it opened one crossing for a couple of days while the fourth was only partially opened.

There is no real end to the siege without opening all commercial crossings on permanent basis, allowing influx of all types of goods, opening a safe passage between Gaza and the West Bank, and finally allowing a sea route between Gaza and the outside world under European supervision, Khudari elaborated.

He championed continued pressure on the IOA to achieve those goals, asking the UN Secretary General and UNRWA to continue pressuring the IOA until the siege is totally lifted.

Meanwhile, a delegation of Lebanese doctors arrived in the Gaza Strip on Sunday in a show of solidarity with the besieged people of Gaza.

The crossings and borders authority said in a statement that the 8 Lebanese doctors would remain in Gaza till next Thursday and might operate on a number of patients.

  1. Some of these ‘banned’ items are so rediculously innocuous and yet important to daily life/health that the entire WORLD should use the same embargo list against Israel to force it to understand the depth of their psychosis and Nazi like actions. Black, white, Jew, Arab it does NOT matter what one is or says but rather what one does in life that defines them. Here in the USA we will soon be experiencing some of the Gazan’s pain as services and aid is cut in order to finance the war our CONgressional whores have been ordered to fight with Iran. The fact that the farce of KBR/Halliburton selling nuclear tech to Iran right up to 2006 underscores the blatantly arrogant hypocracy and hubris of our ‘elected’. Once Israel gets tired of waiting and does the pre-emptive strike then that will essentially legitimize using Israeli ‘tactics’ against ALL Jews around the world whether they are zionists or not. Just like they allowed some to be sacrificed for the greater good in WW2 only this time the bought off ‘leaders’ will be unable to quell the dissent and actions forthcoming. Governmental incompetence in the USA has reached epidemic levels from 9/11 and the lies and deaths that followed to the bank meltdown, purposely engineered and then ‘fixed’ by the same people who caused it (it WILL happen again!!!) to Katrina and the BP oil response essentially thumbs up their asses while the burden is on we the people to deal with these issues to the most glaring and obvious- The largest most powerful military in the world cannot defeat the people of two nations who have no navy, air force nor cogent miltary apparatus.
    If these banned commodities were read live on the US evening MSM news the utter foolishness and inhumanity of the zionists would be irreperably damaged- by the simple truth. THAT is why MSM will NEVER do this but rather mention it in the abstract and comment on only viably banned items.
