On of the biggest media lies in regards to Israel is our time, is that Israel has enforced a blockade on the people of Gaza. There is hardly any media who tell us the truth.
While Egypt has sealed their border with Gaza to stop Hamas from establishing bases in Egypt, Israel has kept their border open. There are obviously restrictions, to avoid Islamic terrorists from entering Israel, and bomb materials to be imported into Gaza. But despite a terrorists organization ruling on the Gaza-strip, Israel is supplying thousands of tons of humanitarian aid into enemy territory.
The Jewish mercy and grace towards the Muslim population within the Gaza-strip is also without conditions. When the people of Gaza fall sick, they are taken in thousands to hospitals inside the Jewish state.
Shame on global media. Shame on United Nations, and all political and church leaders who defame and demonize the state of Israel.
