Israel "eases" the blockade on Gaza

It’s a start, but not quite there yet. Key paragraph:

Tony Blair, envoy for the Middle East Quartet — the U.S., Russia, the European Union and the United Nations — said in a statement Israel would publish a list of weapons and war items not permitted into Gaza rather than those permitted, and allow full access of civilian goods.

That seems semantic, but it’s not. Publish a list of permitted items and it’s easy to start blocking everything possible. The opposite? Far more open.

Now they just need to lift the damn blockade entirely.
