    So why not allow ships laden with humanitarian aid through while turning away ships with arms?

    Let me guess...... you look at the side of the ship and if it says "ARMS SHIP" you don't let it in?

    I think Israel should remove the blockade. I don't see how this blockade is going help create a solution to the conflict. Unless, Israel believe that the solution is to get rid of all the Palistinians by starving them to death.

    Well since Israel has shown no qualms about boarding ships in international waters to search them, then I don't really see how an expectation that ship would be searched before being allowed through the blockade would be that great a leap in logic.

    So let me guess...you didn't bother to think that one through, did you?

    I'm talking about the mission in Afghanistan, among other things.

    If you can find one instance where Canada has backed out of a UN commitment, please find it so I can know.

    Technically that's what happening.
    But in order to know which ship carries humanitarian aid and which carries arms you need to board and inspect the ship first.

    The blockade's purpose it to provide security for the Israeli citizens, not to provide a solution to the conflict.
    The two-states soltuion is a solution to the conflict, cutting supplies to a territory governed by a terrorist organization is not.

    Israel is the size of Rhode Island. There are 20 muslim nations around them that all want them dead and gone. Screw Gaza and the a-hole palestinians. They can find a new area to live. Israel has every right to block them after constantly getting attacked by them!
