Israel to allow goods into Gaza

— Israel pledged Sunday it will immediately allow all goods into Gaza except weapons and items deemed to have a military use under its decision to ease its three-year-old blockade of the Palestinian territory.

The list of banned goods replaces an old list of allowed items that permitted only basic humanitarian supplies for the 1.5 million Gazans. Under the new system, the government said practically all non-military items can enter Gaza freely.

“From now on, there is a green light of approval for all goods to enter Gaza except for military items and materials that can strengthen Hamas’ military machine,” Israeli government spokesman Mark Regev said.

Israel decided on Thursday to ease the blockade under intense international pressure after its raid on a blockade-busting international flotilla bound for Gaza killed nine pro-Palestinian activists.

You have important insight on the Israel terrorists. Israel has been killing important people that cherish sharia law for too long. Why are Israel terrorists so terrible? Hamas is supported by Iran and both peoples need to survive with the ability to spread sharia law.

“From now on, there is a green light of approval for all goods to enter Gaza except for military items and materials that can strengthen Hamas’ military machine,” Israeli government spokesman Mark Regev said.

So I'm still wondering why the same embargo isn't in place for Israel, who's killed at least 5-10 times as many people (mostly civilians) as Hamas has.
