Belgian minister not allowed to enter Gaza from Israel

Israel has denied a request by Belgian Minister for International Development Charles Michel to enter Gaza from Israel.
Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon told the Belgian minister that Israel could not authorize the request, as official visits to the Strip are interpreted as giving legitimacy to Hamas.

Ayalon added that any humanitarian aid that Belgium passes onto Hamas would, in the end, be embezzled by terrorists, and would not reach those in need.

In a press statement, Michel said, "It's not normal that access to Gaza is denied to a minister whose country is funding projects there."

Belgium provides humanitarian aid to Gazans via two different UN agencies.
Let him take it up with the Egyptians. Maybe they will let him in. And if they don't, well, who told you to invest in a terror organization?

The Belgians can take it up with the Egyptians. Israel is not obligated to grant any one automatic access into enemy territory.
