Incredible: Israel restores power to Gaza

You will recall that on Sunday, a Hamas rocket knocked out Gaza's power station, through which Israel supplies some 30% of the Strip's electricity. At the time, the government of Israel ordered the Israel Electric Corporation not to restore power.

Incredibly, on Monday, Israel Electric Corp. (with government approval) outfitted its workers with bulletproof vests and sent them out to repair the power station.

After a day without power, electricity was restored to some 70,000 Gazans when the Israeli government gave the Israel Electric Corp. the green light to repair a high-power line damaged by a rocket on Saturday. 
The IEC employees dispatched to repair the damage were accompanied by Israel Defense Forces soldiers and outfitted with bulletproof vests. They wore special helmets as well to minimize the threat of shrapnel injuries.

Israel is full of friers (suckers). Sorry but that is the bottom line. Just outrageous. I am sick over this.
