Israel Unveils Procedures to Ease Gaza Blockade

 Israel says it will ease the blockade, but retain the prerogative to ban "dual-use" materials.

The US insisted on a similar prerogative during its sanctions imposed on Iraq between 1991 and 2003 - depriving ordinary Iraqis of vital materials, including chemicals crucial for sanitation and infrastructure. I expect Israel to do the same.  This easing of the blockade will likely not be all that it will be cracked up to be.
