glad to see our US taxes and military equipment at work.... They opened the border up yesterday just to slaughter these people.... let me guess, they were all terrorists or they were hiding with innocent people, those are the two usual excuses for these atrocities. These acts are no better than the suicide bombers who take out innocent people in a crowded venue.

When will the "lib/dem/pussy/commie s" ever get the message. The only way to stop this is to kill them all. Hey I will compromise, lets just get killing them faster than they multiply. They say they want to die anyway. Let's get it done.

No other diesel fuel (for standby generators and transport) was delivered during that week, no petrol (which has been kept out since early November) or cooking gas. Gaza’s hospitals are apparently relying on diesel and gas smuggled from Egypt via the tunnels; these supplies are said to be administered and taxed by Hamas. Even so, two of Gaza’s hospitals have been out of cooking gas since the week of 23 November.
On 5 November the Israeli government sealed all the ways into and out of Gaza. Food, medicine, fuel, parts for water and sanitation systems, fertiliser, plastic sheeting, phones, paper, glue, shoes and even teacups are no longer getting through in sufficient quantities or at all. According to Oxfam only 137 trucks of food were allowed into Gaza in November. This means that an average of 4.6 trucks per day entered the strip compared to an average of 123 in October this year and 564 in December 2005. The two main food providers in Gaza are the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) and the World Food Programme (WFP). UNRWA alone feeds approximately 750,000 people in Gaza, and requires 15 trucks of food daily to do so. Between 5 November and 30 November, only 23 trucks arrived, around 6 per cent of the total needed; during the week of 30 November it received 12 trucks, or 11 per cent of what was required. There were three days in November when UNRWA ran out of food, with the result that on each of these days 20,000 people were unable to receive their scheduled supply. According to John Ging, the director of UNRWA in Gaza, most of the people who get food aid are entirely dependent on it. On 18 December UNRWA suspended all food distribution for both emergency and regular programmes because of the blockade.
The World Bank has warned that Gaza’s banking system could collapse if these restrictions continue. All cash for work programmes has been stopped and on 19 November UNRWA suspended its cash assistance programme to the most needy. It also ceased production of textbooks because there is no paper, ink or glue in Gaza. This will affect 200,000 students returning to school in the new year. On 11 December, the Israeli defence minister, Ehud Barak, sent $25 million following an appeal from the Palestinian prime minister, Salaam Fayad, the first infusion of its kind since October. It won’t even cover a month’s salary for Gaza’s 77,000 civil servants.

good luck with that speed. their data came from non profits and .gov websites.
oh yeah, for anyone who thinks "f*ck the israeli's are trying to help what's wrong with these damn palestinians," keep in mind Israel has basically been trying to starve the entire society to death.
Israel is sending food into the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip while threatening an invasion. But Hamas is not backing down.
Israel reopened border crossings and sent basic food and supplies into Gaza. The army said 90 trucks crossed the border carrying rice, flour, fuel and medicine. The border crossings have been closed since a six-month Gaza cease-fire expired a week ago. Since then, Palestinian militants have bombarded southern Israel with dozens of rockets and mortar shells.
The crossings were opened a day after Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert threatened to invade Gaza, which is ruled by the Islamic militant group Hamas. Olmert issued the threat in a rare interview on al-Arabiya television, which broadcasts to the Arab world.
"We have enormous power, we can do things which will be devastating," he said. "And I keep restraining myself and I keep restraining my friends all the time and I tell them, 'Let's wait, let's wait, let's wait. Let's give them another chance.'"
But with rockets and mortars terrorizing southern Israeli towns and farming communities, Mr. Olmert has come under increasing pressure to act against Hamas, a group that refuses to renounce violence or recognize Israel. The prime minister says he is running out of patience.
"And I'm telling them now, 'It may be the last minute.' I'm telling them, 'Stop it, we are stronger. There will be more blood there.' Who wants it? We don't want it," he said.
Israel is reluctant to invade Gaza, fearing high casualties among Israeli soldiers and Palestinian civilians, and in turn, international condemnation.
That could be why Hamas seems unfazed by the Israeli threats.
Hamas spokesman Ismail Radwan said Gaza's ground is not covered with fragrant flowers, but with men and women suicide bombers. He said Israel would not dare invade Gaza because it knows it would pay a heavy price.
11/03/2008 18:45 TEL AVIV, March 11 (RIA Novosti) - Palestinian militants have launched a rocket at a city in the south of Israel, breaking a tacit ceasefire agreement, the Israeli army said on Tuesday.
The rocket landed in an open area in Ashkelon, Israel's southernmost city, with a population of 120,000. No casualties have been reported so far.
The attack on the city was the first rocket launch from Gaza on Israel since Sunday, and although Israeli military officials did not comment on whether or not they would now undertake retaliatory action, the development offered little hope for the current informal ceasefire.
Israel ended a devastating military operation in Gaza eight days ago, and Egypt, responding to U.S. pressure, has been intensifying efforts to mediate between the Israelis and Hamas.
Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert had visited Ashkelon shortly before the rocket was launched.
Responsibility for the rocket attack was claimed by the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, a small leftist militant group, but Israel held Hamas directly responsible.
"Hamas controls Gaza and they are responsible for every missile fired from Gaza into Israel," said government spokesman Mark Regev, going on to accuse Hamas of having an "extreme, violent and hateful" agenda.
Militants have launched around 20 Katyusha-type Grad rockets on Ashkelon since late February. The Russian-made rockets are more powerful and have a longer range than the more commonly used Qassam rockets
More than 120 Palestinians, many of them women and children, were killed last week in Israeli military operations in Gaza. The operation came as a response to rocket attacks from the enclave, which has been controlled by Hamas since a bloody conflict with the moderate pro-presidential group Fatah last June.
Last Thursday, in another round of the seemingly unstoppable ***-for-tat killings that have thwarted attempts to move toward a peace deal between Israel and the Palestinian territories, a Palestinian gunman shot eight students dead in the library of a Jewish seminary in Jerusalem before himself being gunned down. The killings were the worst terrorist attack the city had seen in four years
