Is it "terrorism" to willfully deny people, including children, access to clothes and shoes for three years? I don't know, but it's certainly immoral and illegal. It's also a policy that has been supported by almost the entire "civilized world." Of course that's "civilization" in the Ghandian sense:
Israel will allow a shipment of clothes and shoes to be delivered to Palestinians in the Gaza Strip for the first time in its almost three-year-old tight blockade of the enclave, Palestinian officials said on Monday.
And what does the "civilized world" have to say?
Israel is under international pressure to relax its blockade.
Yes, and you can tell just how strong that "pressure" has been by the fact that it hasn't succeeded in relaxing the blockade enough to allow in clothes and shoes for three years!
