Israel declares Gaza 'hostile entity'

Do ya think so...?

Watch the wingbats froth from the mouth over this one.
Fancy threatening to deny electricity and water and gas to the very people trying to kill you? Its so inhumane....

From AFP:

Israel on Wednesday branded the Gaza Strip a "hostile entity," clearing the way for it to shut off basic supplies to the Hamas-run territory in revenge for rocket fire, a senior official told AFP.

"Following extensive legal consulations, Israel has decided to declare Gaza as a hostile entity, with all the international implications," the official told AFP following a meeting of Israel's powerful security cabinet.

"This move will prepare the groundwork for sanctions against Gaza, such as the interruption of gas, electricity and water supply, which will occur in a gradual process," the official said on condition of anonymity.

The official said the cabinet did not take any immediate decisions to turn off the taps to the territory -- home to 1.5 million Palestinians -- but that the move "clears the way for the government to do so."
