David Cameron: Gaza is a prison camp

UK's PM David Cameron drew the ire of Israel and its friends today as he labeled Gaza as a 'prison camp'. Most Israeli defenders who were 'shocked' by Cameron's statement agreed with it. However, they seemed to hold Hamas as the sole responsible for the situation in Gaza, ignoring that Palestinians voted for Hamas and accrediting the thesis that Israel's treatment of Gaza amounts to a collective punishment of a million and a half people.

I don't know if Cameron's statement is tactical or if it is a genuine courageous political act. I don't care. Kudos to David Cameron!
