Note to Self: Deputy Minister of Defense – “Cut Power, Fuel Supply to Gaza”

JERUSALEM – Deputy Minister of Defense Danny Danon (Likud) demanded this morning during the Security Cabinet meeting that Israel stop supplying Gaza with electricity and fuel.

“The supplying of electricity and fuel to the Gaza Strip must be stopped immediately”, said Danon, “It’s inconceivable that on one hand we are fighting the Hamas and on the other hand we supply them with electricity and fuel used for the propelling of rockets fired at us.”

He demanded that Israel use all its leverage to bring Hamas to a cease fire.

This morning an Egyptian news site quoted an Egyptian military official who stated that Egypt has destroyed 19 tunnels connecting the Gaza Strip to the Sinai. This further hinders the Hamas’ supply and rearmament efforts.

  5. Patrick Obi says:

  13. Paul W. Howe says:

    Yes. Should starve them of essentials to make them surrender..

  14. NO let them use their own hospital and doctors they think they are so smart getting away with this.

  15. Sit in the dark and do some thinking might help their mind set.

  16. Perhaps give them 24 hrs to get food and water for their families, then cut all services for 72 hours. If that doesn’t work, take stronger measures.

  24. Say, Irfan-still going down on your imam? He loves you!

  25. Paul Weiss says:

    IMAM’S go down on their followers, and then take up the anus!

  26. Paul Weiss says:

    one more thing Irfan- Mohammed sucks too, as do his ignorant followers like you and all of Arabia.

  27. One of only a few sane voices left in our dear little country

  28. NuritG says:

    If Israel cuts power, fuel supply and other goodies this terror enclave receives, maybe people will start leaving the place and go find other places to live, like to Qatar that supports Gaza. That will make the job for Israel to clean up Gaza and settle it with Jews so much easier.
