Trapped – collective punishment in Gaza

The Israeli authorities argue that the blockade on Gaza is in response to Palestinian attacks, especially the indiscriminate rockets fired from Gaza at the nearby Israeli town of Sderot. These and other Palestinian attacks killed 25 Israelis in the first half of this year; in the same period Israeli forces killed 400 Palestinians.

However, the Israeli blockade does not target the Palestinian armed groups responsible for attacks – it collectively punishes the entire population of Gaza.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In some dictionary of the future, you'll see the heading "collective punishment", and a reference to: "see: Israel".

THAT is how this country will be remembered.
