Disengagement and Reengagement: Israel's cruel occupation game in Gaza

Gideon Levy reports from Gaza.

Meanwhile, the unity government agreed by Hamas and Fatah does not seem to be initiating the kind of positive change on the side of the US toward easing the restrictions imposed on the Palestinians as a punitive measure for electing Hamas.

The economic situation in Gaza is beyond anything we could imagine and can be only compared to the economic situation in the Warsaw ghetto during WWII.
Alain Gresh writes:'' The year 2006 will be the worse in the history of Palestinians if the actual situation does not evolve positively.'' Which means: If the international aid is still blocked. There will be 40% decrease in the average income and 67 % of the population will be considered as living in poverty.
Gresh took these figures from the world bank report.
