"Siege" news

Israel, has allowed construction material into Gaza for the second day in a row.

Yesterday, truckloads of cement and iron bars entered Gaza. Today, more truckloads of unspecified "building materials" are coming in.

The amount of cement that Israel is quietly sending into Gaza in two days is roughly the same amount that the Free Gaza movement is noisily planning to bring into Gaza whenever they manage to get their ships coordinated. The difference is that Israel is coordinating with UNRWA to ensure that the cement is used for real building projects; Free Gaza's is going to go directly towards Hamas weapons bunkers.

Is anyone interested in asking a question on their Facebook wall as to whether, given Hamas being democratically elected, they support Hamas' unlimited import of weapons into Gaza like any other state?
