The night the lights went out in Gaza?

Will tonight be the night the lights went out in Gaza? That's what the 'Palestinians' are telling everyone today. Of course, the world is in an uproar despite the fact that all the savages have to do to keep the lights on is to stop shooting rockets at Israeli civilians in the Negev. But they refuse to stop, Israel has stopped fuel deliveries and now it's just a matter of hours - claim the 'Palestinians' - before the lights go out in Gaza.
One of two turbines producing electricity has already stopped working, and another will stop later Sunday, due to a lack of diesel fuel.

The fuel shortage was a result of Defense Minister Ehud Barak's decision on Thursday to halt all shipments to the Strip.

Barak's decision came after Hamas renewed Kassam rocket fire last week, resulting in unusually heavy barrages on Sderot. The defense minister decided then to tighten the blockade on the Strip, saying that only humanitarian cases of an extreme nature would be considered.


The UN organization in charge of Palestinian refugees, UNRWA, warned the move would drastically affect hospitals, sewage treatment plants and water facilities.

"The logic of this defies basic humanitarian standards," said Christopher Gunness, spokesman for the UN Relief and Works Agency.
But there's something strange here. The 'Palestinians' get two thirds of their electricity from Israel, and that supply is unaffected. So why would the lights go out in Gaza?
In addition to the fuel it receives from Israel to power its electrical plant, Gaza gets about two-thirds of its electricity directly from Israel. Israeli officials said that supply would not be affected.
Unless, the 'Palestinians' are lying and are going to shut the lights purposely so as to arouse the sympathy of the UN and it's various agencies.... Ya' think?

If Israel is condemned for this, it will truly be "the night they hung an innocent man."

I may be in the minority in this but who says Israel is obligated to be kind to an enemy bent on genocidal mass murder of her people? Israel owes the enemy, zip, zero, zilch, nada!

If the Arabs want electricity let them build their own power plant, maintain it and deliver their own power. Until then, they are not ready even for a reichlet.

Here's what I said on YNet recently:

As an American Jew, I know I have the right to emigrate to Israel and claim Israeli citizenship, but why should I? Why should I move to a country which won't defend itself? Moving to Israel may have many benefits, maybe even offsetting the increase in danger. But why should I throw my lot in with a country which doesn't seem (at the government level) to care about its citizens' welfare?

I agree with Minister Dichter. Defense of Israel should not be coupled with Palestinian welfare. That should not be Israel's concern. How things have gotten to a point where a population of people literally bites the hand that feeds them, and that hand keeps offering more food, is way beyond me. The Gazans have made their choice, let them live (or die) with it.

Israel should cut off all power and all imports and exports including medical supplies to Gaza, until they unconditionally surrender.

We're on the same wavelength. I do agree the Israeli Left is right on separation. But I want to go further and cut off all Israel's assistance to the Arabs. There's something wrong with sending fuel to those who would murder Jews while Israeli Jews are dying of cold at home. That is misplaced compassion.

Israel has agreed already to a two state solution so I don't think that genie can now be put back in the bottle. But by the same token, nothing about Israel's recognition of Arab rights of self-determination says Israel has to build their state for them. Let the Arabs do it with their own two hands. That will keep them occupied and give them less time to spend in exporting terror and mayhem to Israel.

Its the time the Arabs became adults. Continuing to treat them like eternal children is not going to bring about peace between Israel and them.

Let Israel look after Jews first from now on.
