End the Siege of Gaza, November 2-8

On November 4th, 2008 the Israeli military broke a four-month cease-fire with Hamas. Low-low intensity warfare and an ongoing crippling siege then continued until Israel's Dec. 27-Jan 18 assault on the Gaza Strip.  Today, the situation in Gaza has deteriorated even further, with 1.5 million civilians continuing to live amidst rubble, dependent on inadequate UN food deliveries, lacking even hearing aids and school books.  Use the following strategies and tools to end Israel's illegal siege on Gaza!
