Oxfam calls for war?

Oxfam has called for the 'international community' to use all of its 'political might' to take 'decisive action' to cause Israel to reopen access to the Gaza Strip despite 'Palestinian' rocket fire on Ashkelon and Sderot.
Oxfam called on the state [of Israel] to end "the blockade" of the Strip. "World leaders must step up and exercise all their political might to break the blockade of Gaza," a statement released by the humanitarian organization said.

"As a matter of humanitarian imperative, Israeli leaders must resume supplies into Gaza without further delay. If Israelis and Palestinians alike don't exert every effort now to maintain the truce which has held since last June, the result could be catastrophic for civilians both in Gaza and in nearby Israeli towns," said Oxfam International Executive Director Jeremy Hobbs," he continued.

"For nearly a year and a half unimpeded access to fuel, food, medicines and essential goods has been routinely denied. Failure of the international community to act decisively will only exacerbate human suffering and could further endanger chances for peace."
Did it ever occur to Oxfam that maybe the 'international community' should tell the 'Palestinians' to stop shooting rockets?

By the way, the EU has also called for Israel to re-open access to the Gaza Strip. That's in character.

Just think: If this were January 21, the Obama administration might also be calling for Israel to re-open access to the Gaza Strip. What a nightmarish (and unfortunately all too real) thought.

The Gaza strip has a border on the south with Egypt and according to Hamas, they also have 1000 smuggling tunnels from there. In an article on Israel National News I saw photos of market places selling new motorcycles and all kinds of stuff.

Closing the gate into what's left of Israel helps to stop terrorists and their armaments from getting through. I don't understand Oxfam's "humanitarian" (sic) call. Why doesn't Oxfam or the EU bring "emergency" supplies the Philistines need, if any, through the Egyptian border? Why no complaints there?

I'm so confused.
