@Ishtiaq Bercha: Assad butchers his own people on a daily basis to the tune of some 30,000 killed over the last year and a half ! Obviously you have not seen any news of the ARAB SPRING which has toppled the Arab dictators in Tunisia, Libya, and Egypt! Assad will be next, so why are you defending him after his slaughter of Syrians???

@Cautious: Wow Pakistani’s more malnutrite then gazans thats a first. Can you back up your comments to make that more convincing.

Easy Google - last article I read was on ET. You still haven't provided a reasonable explanation on why Gaza can't get food, medicine etc through the Egyptian border and your speculation that Egypt is afraid to upset America by providing transit for food/medicine is just more anti American blather which has zero substance.
