Klare Optionen zu Sinn und Zweck der Blockade des Fundamentalistenregimes in Hamastan, die auch für schlichtere Gemüter überschaubar sein sollten:
Option 1 – ohne Blockade
Hezbollah in Lebanon, which shares a land border with Syria and is not under blockade, has a gigantic arsenal of rockets and missiles, more than most governments in the Middle East, and that arsenal includes missiles that can reach every single inch of Israeli territory, including Jerusalem, downtown Tel Aviv, Ben-Gurion International Airport, and the Dimona nuclear power plant. The next war between Israel and Hezbollah will likely mean missiles, artillery shells, and payloads from air strikes will explode all over the Eastern Mediterranean, making last year’s small war in Gaza look even smaller.
Option 2 – mit Blockade
Hamas has a relatively tiny arsenal of crude rockets, but if the Gaza Strip were not under military blockade, it could acquire whatever weapons Syria and Iran felt like sending by ship. Gaza could bristle with as many destructive projectiles as Hezbollah has. Food and medicines are allowed into the Strip already, so the most significant difference between Gaza now and a Gaza without a blockade will be the importation of weapons and war material.
Und jetzt dürfen uns die lieben Friedensaktivisten erläutern, was sie besser finden bzw. warum sie dann doch lieber Kriegsaktivisten sein wollen.
