Crisis in Gaza

Is that a little weird? Since when has Gaza not been in crisis?


BBC News[/url]]Gaza's humanitarian situation is at its worst since Israel occupied the territory in 1967, say UK-based human rights and development groups.

They include Amnesty International, Save the Children, Cafod, Care International and Christian Aid.

They criticise Israel's blockade on Gaza as illegal collective punishment which fails to deliver security.

Unsurprisingly, I agree with them (not about it being the worst since 1967 - I would not know, but about it being bad.)


For fairness' sake:
