Gaza Aid

From the BBC today - UN warns of Gaza aid 'time bomb' and Palestinian despair as donors meet.

Some background not reported by the BBC - according to the CIA World Factbook, the fertility rate in Gaza is 5.78 children per woman. Never mind more money, what about some birth control? Furthermore, life expectancy is higher in Gaza (71.97 years) than either Syria (70.32 years) or Iran (70.26 years).
