While the regressive left continues to demand that Israel “end the siege” of Gaza, Israel continues to turn up new evidence of why its blockade is necessary and justified. Today Prime Minister Netanyahu reported finding rocket and tunnel supplies in a shipment of textiles and jewelry.

If Israel ended the blockade, such items would flow into Gaza freely, and Israel would be militarily attacked more frequently and more severely. By keeping up the blockade, Israel is attacked in the media and at the UN.
This is just another illustration of how Israel is demonized for merely defending itself.
