Let’s not starve them in Gaza but getting close would be fun

What kind of democratic state would do this? That’s right, Israel isn’t a democracy for Arabs, so this kind of blatant racism is just another day at the office:

In the three years since Hamas took control of Gaza, Israeli officials have employed mathematical formulas to monitor foodstuffs and other basic goods entering the Strip to ensure that the amount of supplies entering was neither less nor more than the amount Israel permitted, according to documents released last week.

The documents – released Thursday in response to a Freedom of Information Act petition by the non-profit group Gisha – were drafted while Amos Gilad served as interim coordinator of government activities in the territories, heading the body that checked the goods.
