While Hamas-Israeli relations continue to suffer the actual public human beings in Gaza, International Law continues to be a gray area these days. Some Palestinians are subsisting on animal feed, while today Israel is continuing its blockad on any attempt at humanitarian aid. The situation in Gaza could already have been described as a disaster, now it’s even worse. Is this what Israel is looking for? I thought the state desires security. Does this foster security? Maybe I missed that IR theory class. This will quickly be moving from a political situation for the Obama Administration to a humanitarian crisis. I agree with Scowcroft (who Obama tends to agree with too) and Brzezinski, this crisis needs to be on top of the priority list, because progress here reverberates throughout the Islamic world.
