Still not enough goods in Gaza?

European foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton is still worried that there are not enough goods coming into or out of the Gaza Strip.
Catherine Ashton, the EU foreign and security affairs chief, said Monday Israel must do more to allow goods in and out of the Gaza Strip.

"We need to see more happening to improve the situation in Gaza, especially for exports to be allowed so that the Gaza economy can start to grow again," Ashton told reporters on arrival at a meeting with the EU foreign ministers. "There is much to be done."
Perhaps she hasn't heard that there is now a surplus of goods in Gaza and that prices are falling.

As to exports, to export you must manufacture something. Thus far, the only thing the 'Palestinians' are interested in exporting is Kassams via air freight. Maybe Ashton wants to go make something for them to export. We won't.

Israel is not going to open its borders for Ashton or any one else. Israel is still a sovereign state. Israel needs to contain Hamas and the Europeans aren't overly thrilled with it. Yet all the options Israel is faced with range from bad to worse and the policy Israel adopted with European and American urging is the least bad of all the bad choices it had available to it. The Palestinians offer nothing Israel could want or need.

Why is that so hard for EU foreign policy chief Ashton to grasp?

OMG! Is that a photoshopped picture or is that 'woman' really that ugly? I do not comment on a womans looks often but that creature certainly could compete with Helen Thomas in the ugly contest...
