The Gaza Strip is one of the most densely populated in the worldTwo thirds of its inhabitants are refugees, and more than half of the population is under 18 years of age.Since Israel occupied the Gaza Strip in 1967, it has systematically de-developed the economy.After Hamas won the democratic elections in 2006, Israel intensified its blockade of the Gaza Strip, and after Hamas consolidated its control of the territory in 2007, Israel reinforced its illegal siege by one notch.Meanwhile, Israel has launched no less than eight military operations against the Gaza Strip – which culminated in Operation Cast Lead in 2008-9 and the Operation of the Protective Cushion in 2014 – which left behind more than three million tons of rubble.UN reports predict Gaza will be unliveable by 2020Norman GFinkelstein presents a highly documented and devastating coroner’s inquest into Israel’s actions over the past decadeHe argues that, while Israel justified its blockade and aggression in the name of self-defence, in fact these actions were cynical exercises of brutal power against essentially a defenceless civilian populationBased on hundreds of human rights reports, the book examines various violations of international law committed by Israel both during its operations and during its ten years of siege of GazaIt is a monument of the Gaza Strip martyrs and burning with accusations against their tormenters
