The Gaza siege is a small analogy that eloquently depicts the entire Palestinian narrative. Gaza is not a detached entity and thus cannot be treated as an exception. But to focus on Gaza is very important, because, first, isolation and starvation is the fate that awaits the West Bank once the Israeli project of colonisation and Bantustanisation is completed. Second, because the situation in the poor strip is too dire and too urgent to dismiss as business as usual. The fact that Gaza has been turned into a mammoth open-air prison, in which the movement of goods and people is entirely governed and determined by Israel, is largely ignored by the media.
Gaza is indeed dying a slow death. Until Israel and its allies, including some Palestinians, determine their next move, Gaza’s suffering will continue.
