Daybreak: The Blockade Has Failed

Plus Reform Yoffie retires, and more in the news

Print Email

• The flotilla aftermath has brought home the blockade’s failure to disrupt Hamas’s rule, prompting rapid rethinking in Israel of alternative ways to strenghten Gaza’s pro-Western business class and undermine Hamas. [NYT]

• The Obama administration is working Capitol Hill to somewhat defang Iran energy sanctions—which would ban the sale of refined petroleum—lest they go too far and anger diplomatic allies. [LAT]

• Rabbi Eric Yoffie, longtime head of the Reform movement, announced that he will step down two years from now. [Forward]

• The French, Spanish, and Italian foreign ministers call for an “impartial, transparent, and … international” investigation; an end to the blockade; and resumption of the peace process. [IHT]

• Speaking at the Brookings Institution in Washington, D.C., President Abbas acknowledged Jewish history in the land and claims to West Jerusalem. [JPost]

As usual the nyt is full of manure and it literally stinks from them. Rethinking? From where i sit the flotilla’s attempt to disrupt the blockade. Now there are an additional 10 dead terrorists that have been sent up there to consort with the 72 virgins.
THAT IS WHAT FAILED. ISRAEL WOULD HAVE LIKED THAT HAMAS NOT EXIST BUT TO CHANGE THE MIND OF MORONS IS VERY HARD INDEED. ONE DAY A LONG TIME FROM NOW, ‘THEY WILL CEASE TO EXIST’.
