UN expert repeats call for threat of sanctions against Israel over Gaza blockade

In light of Egypt's continued blockade of of the Third Viva Palestine Gaza Convoy that left London, this article reminds us of the continued damage made by Israel's blockade.

29 December 2009 –
The United Nations independent expert on Palestinian rights has again called for a threat of economic sanctions against Israel to force it to lift its blockade of Gaza, which is preventing the return to a normal life for 1.5 million residents after the devastating Israeli offensive a year ago.

“Obviously Israel does not respond to language of diplomacy, which has encouraged the lifting of the blockade and so what I am suggesting is that it has to be reinforced by a threat of adverse economic consequences for Israel,” Richard Falk, the Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the Palestinian territories occupied since 1967, told UN Radio.
