    I blogged about this video yesterday as well. I think that it has a noble aim, but is a gross oversimplification of matters. The conclusion one may arrive at after watching it: open the border, is not necessarily practical from a political or security standpoint.

    Charlie,

    I don’t see any other option. You can’t keep 1.5 million people in prison just because you don’t like their leaders. And even from a practical point of view, the siege is just not working – in fact, it’s counterproductive. The civilians are suffering, the Hamas is just getting stronger, and the world sees it is another for of occupation.
