Israel Warns EU of Emerging Gaza Humanitarian Disaster

Gaza is experiencing long, daily blackouts, raw sewage in the streets, and water supply shortages.
The streets of some Gaza neighborhoods are completely flooded with raw sewage, so that pedestrians have no way to go but through the muck. The Hamas government has been sinking Gaza into a quagmire of violence, blackouts, water shortages and now: a cholera epidemic waiting to happen.

The streets of some Gaza neighborhoods are completely flooded with raw sewage, so that pedestrians have no way to go but through the muck. The Hamas government has been sinking Gaza into a quagmire of violence, blackouts, water shortages and now: a cholera epidemic waiting to happen.

These days former Israel Defense Forces Spokesman Brig. Gen. Yoav (Poly) Mordechai is taking over COGAT from Maj. Gen. Dangot. Mordechai used to be chief of the Gaza District Coordination Office and the head of security coordination in Jericho. He must be just as aware and just as alarmed by the situation in Gaza as his predecessor.

Unfortunately, despite the fact that all the Palestinian and pro-Palestinian websites out there put the blame on Israel for the coming catastrophe, Israel—other than refusing to provide building materials to enterprising terrorists—has had little to do with it. The obvious culprit is the Hamas government’s nihilistic policies at the expense of its own people, and some supporting roles for the Egyptians and the PLO.

Alas, for the same reasons, Israel cannot do much directly to solve the problem. Will the EU and the UN move in on what promises to become a plague of unprecedented proportions in Gaza?

Judging by past experience – not really. They’ll let it happen and then blame Israel. It’s cheaper and gets results.
