The indiscriminate killing, the manmade starvation and the bombing of aid workers must bring the west to a moment of decision, says Guardian US writer Chris McGreal

The indiscriminate killing, the manmade starvation and the bombing of aid workers must bring the west to a moment of decisionhere has been no stronger defender than Olaf Scholz’s German government of Israel’s contention that the assault on the Palestinians was a necessary evil.

Undiscriminating warfare has, in turn, contributed to looming mass starvation brought on by Israel’s tight restrictions on food deliveries to northern Gaza, including its refusal to let aid lorries through crossings just a few miles from the areas of greatest need.hundreds of thousands of Palestinians are facing famine in the coming weeks, and that half of the entire population of Gaza will be starving by the end of July if the present food crisis continues.

All this could be resolved by simply opening the northern crossing points. Instead, famine looms ever closer after charities providing hundreds of thousands of meals a dayIn these circumstances, it is difficult not to conclude that Netanyahu is using food as a weapon to do what bombs and bullets have so far failed to, and drive out the remaining Palestinians in northern Gaza – or worse.
