The opening of the corridor, along with the recent inauguration of airdrops of aid, showed increasing frustration with the humanitarian crisis in Gaza and a new international willingness to work around Israeli restrictions.

The frustration is aimed at Hamas, its supporters, and UNWRA, because there is no blockade by Israel on any humanitarian aid.

At the same time, Israel is supplying food, medicine and other necessities to people in Gaza.

What is Hamas providing to those people?

Researchers monitoring the situation on the ground and interviewing locals disagree with you.

Can you provide a quote from that link that reads that Israel has a blockade on aid?

Israel definitely has inhibited aid support reaching people in need of humanitarian assistance and they even used the delivery trucks to massacre innocent civilians .

Does Israel really need to blow everything up and kill so many innocent civilians to eradicate Hamas ?

Eradication of Hamas isn't possible anyway !

Exactly. And it doesn't matter how much the Israel lobby tries to cover their crimes.

To them, every Palestinian man, woman and child is Hamas.

Exactly. They just will create more.

So you agree there was no blockade.

And you agree too.

To them, meaning Hamas.

Right.

“No electricity, no food, no water, no fuel. Everything is closed. We are fighting human animals and we are acting accordingly,” - Defense Minister Yoav Gallant

You can read the ICJ report for plenty of footnoted evidence of Israel's control of aid into Gaza both before and after Oct 7th.

Not to mention the Israeli protesters blocking aid at the border whilst IDF troops stand around and do nothing.

Empty words and empty gestures by sea and air from the genocide-enabling Biden government.

Israeli protesters are blocking the food trucks. It's on the news. The Israeli government seems to do nothing about it. The people of Gaza are waiting for that food, even dying now.

The land routes can supply the most aid. 5,000 trucks stuck at the border.

Forgive us God for we have FAILED the people Gaza every step of the way.

Netanyahu could easily end this Savage and Inhumane situation by allowing the over 2000 aid trucks waiting to cross the border at Rafah crossing but he wouldn't.

Yesterday 2 Palestinians were crushed to death and many more injured when 2 Parachutes of aid boxed failed to open.

People are chasing aid aircrafts trying to gather whatever they can to bring to their homeless children and families while the UNSC, NATO, Israel, the Arab World, and the so called Free World is watching.

Disgusting beyond description.

Makes sense. The animals don't deserve anything, right? - zibala

So is your argument that Israel isn't blocking aid to Gaza? or that Israel is blocking aid to Gaza because Palestinians are animals and don't deserve it?

What is Hamas providing to those people?

A lot of people have been very slow on the uptake over a number of decades over just how badly the Israelis have treated the Palestinians, and much they have been oppressed, marginalized and blamed for their own predicament.

But now, the cat is out of the bag, the Genie is out of the bottle and no amount of pro-Israeli propaganda posted by you, or others, can hide that any more. The world can finally see the situation for what it is. Israel are killing with reckless and wholesale abandon, and whether you bomb people in homes or hospitals, or shoot people trying to get to food trucks, or starve them to death, the result is all the same.

This is Israel's great crime, Israel's great shame. A murderous rogue state.

The world can see.

Death.

Pro-Hamas propaganda.

Right. But elimination of thousands of terrorists and demolition of terrorist infrastructure is a good start.

Netanyahu could easily end this Savage and Inhumane situation by …

Hamas could easily end this savage and inhumane situation by either surrendering or fleeing to the Egyptian border crossing. But the Egyptians certainly won’t let THEIR enemies enter.

The terrorists are the IDF that have killed women and children because they can't beat Hamas.

The IDF target terrorist combatants who use civilians as human shield in contravention of international law. Hamas has ALWAYS targeted Israeli civilians.

… and there are so Jewish voices now that are extremely critical of Israel.

And there are now so many Jewish voters in the US who will vote against Biden because he panders to a few supporters of Jew-haters in Michigan.

 … and much [Palestinians] have been oppressed, marginalized and blamed for their own predicament.

Hasn’t democracy been alive and well since Gazans elected Hamas to rule? They chose it. They have to live and die with it.

Don't need to judge anyone on this board, just look at the votes, Propaganda always FAILS. the truth always WINS.

For years and till these days Zionists have done all they can to Distort, Twist, and brainwash the world about their Occupation of Palestine and FAILED.

Even their closest allies are catching up, it wont be long before their great plan turns against them and the Palestinians will have their STATE on their land of Palestine, it's only a matter of time.

so now the powers that be will ignore the fact that Hamas is hoarding food aid supplied by Israel, and will simply give them more.

Farcical.

Yeah sure. Like the 40 beheaded babies. Nobody believes that crap anymore.

Those are Zionists not Jews. there is a difference

Hasn’t democracy been alive and well since Gazans elected Hamas to rule? They chose it. They have to live and die with it.

So by your logic, all Israelis deserve to be killed because they elected Netanyahu who is a war criminal. Got it.

Von der Leyen said the EU would continue exploring different ways of getting aid to Gaza

Thousands of aid trucks remain stuck at border crossing because Israel is not allowing them to go through. That aid is ready to be delivered and has been for weeks. How about getting Israel to let that aid through first Ursula, before exploring different ways?

While reiterating his support for Israel, Biden used his State of the Union speech to reiterate demands that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to allow in more aid to Gaza.

Did he also pledge to stop supplying IDF with more bomb to slaughter innocent Gaza civilians? If not, he remains a double faced hypocricy advocate. Come on Joe, stop sending the bombs if you really care. Here is what Palestinians say about his plan -

( Al Jazeera news ) Palestinians condemn US aid pier plan

As we’ve been reporting, the US plan to build a temporary port off Gaza’s coast to step up the delivery of aid has been criticised as an attempt to divert attention from Israel’s consistent blocking of assistance to the enclave despite UN warnings of a looming famine.

Commenting on Biden’s announcement, Gaza residents said what they urgently needed was for the US to stop providing Israel with weapons.

“Instead of telling us they will build a port to help us, stop [providing] the weapons they fire at us,” Hassan Maslah, a displaced Palestinian from Khan Younis, now sheltering in Rafah, told Reuters.

“All these American weapons are killing our kids and killing us wherever we go. We don’t need aid from them. We need them to stop the killing, stop the death,” he said.
