Aid for Gaza?

Israel’s blockade of Gaza has caused much hardship among the Gazans who live in what can only be called a vast prison. Even though some of the restrictions have been lifted recently by both Israel and Egypt, there continues be widespread suffering. This little boy will probably die:

In all the whirl of other events both in the US and the Middle East, does anyone remember or care about the Palestinians locked up in Gaza? It's illegal, I believe, in international law to deny life sustaining food and medicine to people under occupation. Where is Hillary's humanitarian urge in this case? We really can't expect Arab Muslims to respect us if there are such wide gaps between our words and our actions (or inactions). We say we are protecting civilians in Libya, but we utter not a word about the civilians of Gaza or Palestine.
