Israeli blockade of Gaza: Is the blockade legal under international law?

  • Yes, Israel is being harassed.

    Yes, the Israeli blockade of Gaza is legal under international law, because Israel is being harassed by other nations that do not recognize its right to exist. All of Israel's actions are defensive. Israel only responds when it is provoked. Other nations will not leave Israel alone, and Israel is justified in defending itself.

  • Yes, the land was promised to Israel.

    Yes, an Israeli blockade of Gaza is legal under international law, because the land was promised to Israel. The land was given to Israel as reparations for the atrocities of World War Two. No nation or group of people can unilaterally take Gaza back, or claim it as their own. Israel has a right to do what it needs to in order to protect its land.

  • Yes, the blockade is necessary

    With Gaza being a terrorist nest with bombs and terror tunnels everywhere, Israel must regulate and know about anyone who enters or leaves the Gaza Strip, while letting humanitarian service in and out and keeping the Palestinian human rights, what most people don't know is the vast amounts of money Israel puts in Gaza strip in order to rebuild buildings and make life better, despite the terror. Long live Israel living in peace next to a peaceful Palestinian state that its people don't hate Israel and deny its existance

  • Israel is Protecting itself.

    I don't understand the issue. Hamas is a terrorist organisation that sends missiles into Israel. What Israel is doing is protecting it's land. Israel uses missiles to protect its kids. Hamas uses kids to protect its missiles. The answer is clear, Gaza which is owned by Hamas is a threat to the safety of Israel.
    You might say that Israel is a bloodthirsty nation who should send medical aid to Gaza. During WW2, did we send medical aid to the Nazis? Why should Israel help those would attack it?

  • Everyone who voted Yes still gets their news t.v.

    Learn your facts people. We need to get rid of Israel, not the people, just the government and state that runs it. It is the beginning of the next Nazi regime. Return the land to the rightful owners. The U.N. has no right in creating the country of Israel by stealing lands from Palestinians.

  • No it's not

    Denying 1.8 million people food, water and electricity is morally wrong. Also Israel Denys medical equipment to them. I'm assuming they'll need lots of medical supplies since Israel has wounded 9000 Gazans in the 2014 war. They've also killed 1900 Palestinians most of whom were civilians. We should boycott Israel.

  • Not really open to debate...

    Since the UN points out Israeli unlawfully occupies those locations. Under international laws the people of Gaza have the right to take arms against an occupying force, yet the rest of the world seem to ignore this international law when they condemn Palestine. Believe in God or not we can't base international laws in 2014 on whether God said such-a-body could or couldn't live somewhere.
