The fate of the flotilla goods

Remember those urgently-needed humanitarian goods on the flotilla? Turns out Hamas is refusing to accept them. Various reasons have been advanced: they won't accept them until all the detainees have been released; they don't know who the intended recipients are; whatever.

As to how vital the goods are: some 80-100 truckloads of humanitarian goods enter Gaza from Israel every day. The flotilla goods make up an estimated 70-80 truckloads, or barely one normal day's worth of shipments. Impressive, isn't it? (Thanks to Daily Alert.)
