Starve Them to Death

Shutting off power and water to 1.5 million people who make less than US$1,000/year.

There is something morally defective here.

Israel declared Gaza a "hostile entity" on Wednesday, and said it would limit supplies to the Hamas-run enclave, overshadowing US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice's latest peace mission.

The decision by Israel's powerful Security Cabinet cleared the way for the government to shut off supplies of electricity and fuel to the impoverished, over-crowded, territory in response to frequent rocket attacks from Gaza.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas blasted Israel's decision Wednesday and said it would increase the suffering of its 1.5 million residents.

There is a certain lack of humanity that boggles the mind. What kind of diseases will come about from lack of drinkable water?
