Good for Martin Fletcher for getting his NBC camera crew into the blacked-out Gaza Strip. The Israeli blockade has halted delivery of food and water and fuel. "No fuel for power plants, so no electricity in most of Gaza, leaving a million people with no heating, no electric lights…no power to fuel water pumps." Desperate Palestinians flocked to the western border to try to persuade Egyptian troops to raise the siege. Fletcher duly made note of international accusations against Israel for imposing "collective punishment" and Israel's justification for the blockade as pressure to prevent Gazan rocket attacks on its border towns.
