As a food snob, I immediately think what restaurants are nearby when planning any excursion. Even if its to a beseiged war zone that Israel forbids from rebuilding. So it’s good to hear from the Israeli government that if by some chance they let me into Gaza there would be a gourmet restaurant waiting for me! No coriander allowed, but I am sure that leads the creative cooks into all sorts of Iron Chef-like challenges.
And here’s Gisha’s latest Gaza Gateway which speculates that Israel’s eagerness to avoid looking too controllling of Gaza stems from the upcoming arrival of the Free Gaza international relief flotilla.
A final Gaza note is that a recent attack on a UNRWA children’s camp shows the perils of trying to overthrow someone else’s government. I don’t think Hamas is going to be overthrown anytime soon, but it’s worth remembering they are not the worse people who could be running Gaza. Hamas condemned the attack and made arrests. However, they did ban protests against the destruction.
