Source: Israel to allow goods into Gaza

Protesters June 6 outside the U.S. Embassy in Turkey.

Israel plans to ease its blockade of Gaza, a source from the prime minister's office told CNN.

"Israel has decided to enable the flow of all civilian goods into the Gaza strip. From today, there is a green light approval for all goods to enter into Gaza except for military items and materials that can strengthen Hamas' military machine," the source said. FULL STORY

      In the past TWO months (and also in the next TWO months) BP has adopted (and will adopt) >>> ONLY <<< its own (and ALL failed) "methods" COMPLETELY IGNORING all the (SEVERAL THOUSANDS) ideas and suggestions that they have (FALSELY) asked for, from experts and common people.
      So, the BP's "ask for ideas" was/is/will be a total LIE and the 200,000,000 gallons of oil (already gushed or that will be spilled in the ocean in the next months) will be a complete BP's responsibility, since, it would AVOIDED, if BP would adopt one of the dozens possible ideas able to STOP the oil spill from the EARLY DAYS like (e.g.) "crimping" the damaged oil riser, using one or more of its giant SHEARS rather than cut the riser forever.

  2. soon justice in Palestine

    Palestine has to be free.
    Gaza and westbank have to be free.
    Racist israel has to be punished for all its crimes.
    Israel can pretend to have killed the peace activists for its security and is sayong that it kills children of gaza for its security too as they say that palestinian children are a future threat to israel existence.
    Israeli existence is threatened by israel existence.
    The racist monster is destroying itself as the more crimes it commits the less chance that the international community will beleive the zionists.

    • ISRAEL forever

      The ISLAM justice is : Sunnah Killing the Shiites & vice versa ,
      If somebody has different thinking he should be killed , In Sirya the Alawites is oppressing any free voice .
      In IRAN the opposition members were not allowed to go to public , in the demonstrations last year they killed people
      who protested the forged elections .

  4. ISRAEL forever

    In palestine there is justice already . The HAMAS Kills FATACH activists .
    The HAMAS is implementing the absolute truth of ISLAM :
    Female_genital_cutting , Honor killing , Throwing rockets on Jewish settlements , Cooperating with Al-Quida .
    & Finally as ARAFAT did with the Donations from EUROPE & USA : he putts some money into his Swiss Bank Account
    to make sure his family will have safe home in PARIS .

    Egypt has fully opened the Gaza passage thru their borders. Urgently needed flotillas of Food and Medical Supply ships should steer for Egyptian territorial waters and if they are flagged NATO nation cargo and passenger ships as those previously intercepted in International Waters, additional charges of kidnapping, theft and high sea's piracy should be placed upon Israeli Officials and those that took part in intercepting them should that occur.

    • ISRAEL forever

      Unless they carry weapon or Cement & Steel .
      USA is also facing terror attacks from the very same sources Radical ISLAM .
      Even the USA has misjudged a convoy to be Terrorists .
      As american I'm sure you understand the value of life and the value of freedom ,
      How an ISRAELI soldier is kept in GAZA for 4 years without seeing anybody from the RED CROSS ?
      ISRAEL is protecting its citizens inside its legitimate borders , as USA does far away from home , but it is acceptable
      since Terrorist are hiding in MUSLIM countries . Would you consider an IRANIAN Flotilla as humanitarian aid – I doubt !
