Graveless in Gaza

Is this a great Alarabiya headline or what: Israeli blockade leads to humanitarian disasterGaza runs out of cement to build gravesTwo humanitarian suggestions: 1 — Gazans could stop killing each other so enthusiastically, so the annual supply of 1000 government provided graves doesn’t get used up so fast. 2– Gazans could stop killing Israelis, giving Israel a reason to relax the blockade.3– (This one is practical, not humanitarian) — Gazans could build a cement factory of their own — since their primary, or perhaps only, natural resource is SAND. That way they could continue murder and mayhem at the rate they are comfortable with — and be able to build all the graves they need. And, an unintended though beneficial side affect might be that they begin to build an economy, too.
