Living conditions in Gaza are getting worse and worse, hunger and disease are widespread. Tim McGirk has a good post on this on Time’s Middle East Blog. Israel is now even keeping international reporters out, in the name of “security”. Having lived in Jerusalem for two years and being able to put human faces on the conflict going on between Israel and Hamas, really makes me feel for all those suffering in Gaza. These problems are largely the fault of the Israeli government, but Hamas and Islamic Jihad must be held accountable. Unfortunately the current tactics being used by Israel make this nearly impossible.
