Actually, Gaza is a massive prison

A charming example of the Israeli government’s global PR in action:

Interviewed on BBC Radio 4’s Today program about Israel’s economic blockade of Gaza, the Israeli ambassador to Britain, Ron Prosor, brushed aside claims that Israel bears responsibility for the cruel privations that the people of Gaza are suffering. What is often overlooked, he observed, is that there is ample access to the Gaza Strip from Egypt and that all manner of goods can be easily transferred into Gaza across the Egyptian border. Gazans, the ambassador added airily, are even free to import Egyptian belly dancers if they wish.
