Big Trouble in Gaza

Bush has left the region. Gaza is still short of everything. Sir Tony Blair is missing in action. But at least Hamas and Egypt are cooperating in closing the border. This after the starving hoardes of the Palestinian emptied the entire border region of foodstuffs, so much so that the locals are wondering what they will eat.

Of course none of this addresses any of the root problems in the region. Israel is still occupying Palestinian land. Still practicing collective punishment on the people of Gaza. All of this is a flagrant violation of international law.
