Humanitarian Crisis in Gaza

Matthew Yglesias has this post on Hamas joining in with the Holocaust deniers.  That is bad, but the rest of the post talks about the humanitarian crisis in Gaza:

"A recent ICRC report emphasizes that the Israeli blockade has pushed unemployment to over 40 percent, while depriving the population of regular access to running water, to say nothing of proper medical. They warn that tens of thousands of children are going malnourished due to “deficiencies in iron, vitamin A and vitamin D.” The indifference of both the Israeli government and the Hamas leadership toward the practical aspects of this humanitarian crisis is truly appalling."
