End the Gaza Siege - by Stephen Lendman


Millions worldwide demand it. So does the Arab League, according to an Al Jazeera June 13 report quoting Amr Moussa, Arab League secretary-general, saying:

"This blockade....must be lifted and must be broken and the Arab League decision is very clear in this regard."


On June 13, Moussa commented after visiting Gaza for talks with Hamas Prime Minister, Ismail Haniyeh, Haaretz reporting he's the highest Arab official to do so since Hamas' 2006 election, after which an Israeli/West embargo followed, then the June 2007 siege.

Moussa entered through Rafah after Egypt reopened it following the Freedom Flotilla massacre, saying it will continue indefinitely.


According to Haaretz:


"Palestinian and Arab League officials said (his) visit (aimed to give) momentum to reconciliation talks between Hamas and Fatah."

Hamas Health Minister Basim Naeem said it indicated that "the boycott between Gaza and the Arab nation was broken, (and that the trip would) be the start of a practical plan to lift the blockade....once and for all, in a complete and comprehensive way."
