      "let the people of Gaza open their port and import every thing they needs and wants through the Port of Gaza. No need to reward Israeli suppliers with billions of supply contracts. I know the world is concerned about Hamas smuggling weapons, and all I can say is that Hamas is simply too stupid to smuggle any thing of significant threat to Israel. All of its rhetoric about challenging Israel is empty words as much as its rockets are stupid and useless."

        I agree to opening the ports to shipments of huimanitarian aid for the people. The ships need to be monitored, a delegation sent to dreate a delivery system to the whole country to make sure the people get the aid, not the government or Hamas

        Do not underestimate Hamas LMC, They are much more cunning than people give them credit for

          Gaza is practically being flooded with goods.  They get plenty in properly and they have tunnels as good as the ones through the Rocky Mountains.

    "The excuses given by Israel and its supporters within the US are not only silly and stupid but makes no sense at all, justifying bully, thuggery and hijackings on the high seas, no different from the Somali Pirates in the Indian Ocean, and its shows the moral and political bankruptcy of Israel and its Zionist agenda and ideology and its sponsors in official Washington."

    Errrr--that would include the US senate.

    The hell with Israel; Open Gaza Port

    Doesn't change what I said. And if I were Israel I would open it and within a month those assholes in Gaza would attack Israel and then they would be crushed. Simple as that.

    This  link, this entire article, really shows the total stupidity of this. Cut them  off, starve them out, unless Obama can veto the settlement agreement, and control the Block of 3rd world Countries bypassing  the US Super-Power veto, by bringing the vote to the floor and not in the Security Counsel.

    So  just to show some un-necessary authority, We Vito their possible existence?  And willing Assist in starving their plight,  When our State Department.  has been told the return of the refugees is not possible in their Native Countries.  And 7 Countries in the Region, including Israel..! Agree there must be two states. The PLO refused the Offer from Israel at Camp David, with Clinton sponsoring the summit,  with a valid offer from Israel,  to give all they asked? 

    There is no real concern for any settlement here at all.  1 million people, sacrificed up between Democracy and Terror..?

    Then we wine  and voice concerns that outside influences “could”  enter in to help them?????

    What kind of reality does our Government really see here?

    We are looking for souls between the dead and the plots of land. No better than people who steal from the Graves..!  We all need a new latitude!

    Both Islam and the U.S..  This is nuts..!

    U.S. Senate should suspend aid to all countries it has been constantly sending aid to begin with.

    The U.S. is only growing it's debt and creating a bigger problem.

      I think they think if you can not fix it, throw money at it. But to me We and Others do not want this fixed.

      we should not be in this at all I think.

            dutchman1951posted 7 years agoin reply to this

            rationale is the US is totaly in. like it or not. So spend the Aid to solve, not agitate and use the population. We are just hrowing the money for the Aid at them, instead of providing real answers to help. We are working both sides at the same time. The History has proven it is folly. The actual Aid is going to Jordan, Syria, and other surrounding Arab Nations, we need out, to get out of that

            Be open and strong. Put the Aid in Israel, no games, and re-infoce, openly what we mean, no mis information, no mix of signals
            to just cut it all would be a isolationism,  and just opening our back as a target, for the comming knife throw.

              Why should Israel get aid?
              It is against the LAW to give aid to countries who have not signed onto the nuclear proliferation treaty...Israsel refuses to sign, ie it is against the law to give them aid!

              Where are America's Balls?????

              *******

              "under US law — the Symington Amendment — foreign aid to any country that has not signed the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty is prohibited.

              Israel refuses to sign the NNPT. Congress votes at least three billion dollars in foreign aid to Israel each year.

              Nothing will ever be done about it. Members of Congress know that anything less than full support of Israel is political suicide."

    Poor Gaza?   The only poverty there is caused by Hamas who along with their friends enjoy wonderful prosperity.

      The refugees there are not owners of the services and buildings there as in the Picture, Those are Property of Rich Jordanian Bankers, and thier Hamass Business Partners.  Those refugees are pawns.

        The Israeli's prevent the Palestinians from helping the refugees?   They prevent Hamas from helping the refugees?  The Israelis control Hamas?  You need to wake up FROM ALL THE PROPAGANDA.  THE ARABS AND HAMAS KEEP PALESTINIANS AS PAWNS AND THEY MAY NEVER STOP.  THEY WANT ISRAEL GONE.  PERIOD.  THE DON'T CARE HOW MANY REFUGEES DIE.   THEY PAY THEM TO GO KILL THEMSELVES KILLING ISRAELIS.

      It's like going to the bank, borrowing money to give to someone else.
      Instead of going back to the bank to pay the money back, lets borrow some more, and give that away too.

      SMART!! lol

      Well, at least the recipient is! lol

    It would be nice if we (The People) threatened The Senates aid so they get their priorities straight.

    And Israel?
    They get all of Palestine, as they had planned all along?
    They have stolen almost all of it already--just let them have it?
    That is the solution?

    So--we reward theft and murder? As we pay for it.

    No thanks--I don't think so.

    International Criminal Court for Likud, that's what I think.

    They have committed acts of crimes against humanity for sure....in MY lifetime...before MY eyes.

    They go to jail.
    And while in there, they can rat out Cheney, Bush and the rest of the neo-cons here,and in Israel, who helped them do 9/11.

    Anything less is playing with Justice. And play-time is Ovah.
