    Israel to allow cement into Gaza

    BBC NEWS | Middle East | Israel to allow cement into Gaza

    Israel has authorised a one-off shipment of hundreds of tonnes of cement and building materials to the heavily embargoed Gaza Strip.

    It is the first official transfer of such goods since Israel's operation early this year in the coastal enclave.

    Many Gazan buildings damaged during the offensive have not been rebuilt because of a shortage of building materials.

    Officials told the BBC that a flour mill, as well as sewage, electricity and water facilities would be repaired.

    A senior Israeli official said the 130,000 tonnes of cement was part of Israel's "ongoing policy to support Gaza's civilian population and to make sure humanitarian needs are met".

    One of the projects, he added, was the reconstruction of the flour mill in partnership with the UN's relief agency for Palestinian refugees (Unwra).

    The shipment is part of a reconstruction plan drawn up by Robert Serry, the UN envoy to the Middle East, said Israel's Haaretz newspaper.
    Are we finally starting to see some easement on Gaza, and the cooperation of Israelis and Palestinians? Or is this just more of the same? Thoughts?

    We'd be starting to see it if this was the first time such thing happens.
    In truth, Israel has always ensured the humanitarian situation in Gaza would not become fatal.
    Not only because it'll only work against Israel on the international ground, but it is also necessary to show the Palestinians that terror is Israel's enemy, and not your regular Palestinian civilian.

    Netanyahu has also said said that he believes the Radical Islam would be beaten from within their societies and that one day the Palestinians would stop following Hamas and oppose them.

    This statement makes it seem like Israel purposefully did all they could to make the situation incredibly horrible in Gaza, keeping it one step above death.

    You mean it makes it sound like that when combined with your obvious hatred and demonization of Israel.
    As I said, in truth, Israel has declared 3 hours per day during the Gaza operation to be a "humanitarian time", during this time Israel has moved in trucks filled with humanitarian aid into the Gaza strip while ceasing the air assault.
    Of course, you'd know it if you'd take time and study the issue.

    So, in response to your posts, what types of propaganda/community outreach, is Israel using to try to increase anti-terror sentiment in the Palestinian communities?

    Israel Warns Hamas of Gaza Strip Invasion After Rocket Attacks | NowPublic News Coverage
    A few days before the Operation started, and a few days after the end of the truce between Hamas and Israel, while 80 rockets fell per day on the town of Sderot, Olmert turned to the Palestinian radio stations and gave a speech, asking them to stop Hamas' rockets attack and telling them that allowing Hamas to launch rockets at Israeli civilians would result in an invasion.

    So they are just beginning to get the equipment needed now to repair the damage caused by the siege? Bloody hell.

    I don't have hatred for Israel, I just call a spade a spade. I won't sugar coat Israel's actions. 3 hours a day for "humanitarian time" in which they don't bomb them, but that leaves 21 hours a day for air assaults. Overall, we'll see where this goes, if the Palestinian people and Israelis can get along well enough to rebuild and cease hostilities. I'm not going to hold my breath over it though. Until Hamas is removed from Palestine, the people acknowledge Israel's existence, and Israel stops it's hostilities towards Palestine; I don't think this problem will ever come to an end.

    Maybe you all missed the New York Times story last week that talked about Israel loosening up on restrictions, and Hamas's new (although temporary) strategy against Israel.

    Read it for yourself here. It's a very interesting read.

    Too little too late. The ghetto of Gaza is a travesty supported by Western dollars. I am ashamed to come from a country whose government openly supports this kind of internment-camp treatment of people in the 21st century.
