"The Israeli government might also have pointed out, when it comes to the flow of “humanitarian goods and people”, that last year more than 10,000 Gazans were treated in Israeli hospitals and that in the first quarter of this year Israel delivered almost 100,000 tons of aid to the territory.”

"Gaza is not the only island in this landlocked chain. Israel is essentially cut off too. I've stood on its borders with Lebanon and Syria, where mines and tanks and trenches mark frontlines that are still on alert. I've crossed its little-used transit points to Jordan and Egypt, signatories to a cold peace.

"From Israeli bases on the Golan Heights you can make out the lights of Damascus. From Jerusalem, the Jordanian capital Amman glows across the valley. Israel sits adrift from both."

"The Syrians have an attitude towards Islamists that makes the Israelis look like Birkenstock-wearing pinkos in comparison – 53 Palestinians (mostly combatants) were killed during the IDF’s attack on Jenin a few years back; anywhere between 25-40,000 people, mostly civilians, were killed when the Syrians stormed the town of Hama to crush an Islamist revolt.

"Hamas' charter and many of its official proclamations announce that it endorses the so-called Protocols of the Elders of Zion, a dirty antisemitic fabrication produced by Christian and czarist extremists and adopted by the Nazis.

"Would you, if you wanted to help Gaza and the Gazans, knowingly augment the power of such a flat-out racist organization by helping make it the proud and exclusive distributor of food and medicine?"
