Those who slam Israel for allegedly causing Gaza's humanitarian crisis would almost certainly sneer at the fact that, despite the peristent Palestinian propaganda as to the cause of the poverty and suffering in this Hamas-controlled enclave, more than 127 trucks, carrying medical equipment, diapers and basic food products were transferred from Israel into Gaza in the past 24 hours. This is hardly the action of a responsible nation as some would allege or infer that seeks anything other than peace with its neighbours.

So how do its neighbours respond?

By firing over 50 rockets and mortars into Israeli territory and by murdering two Israeli civilians at a filling depot close to the Karni border terminal, near Kibbutz Nahal Oz.

That's right. While Hamas and its supporters complain on the one hand about the Gaza blockade, it is responsible for the attack on a fuel terminal that provides gas and fuel to the residents of the Gaza Strip.

And if Israel were to defend itself against the terror attacks from Gaza, we already know how the news would be treated by some in our local media.
