hi Lenny,
You might want to reach out to our Palestinian members for some insight.

Fawzia is now working as a secretary at the Jordan University of Science and Technology but I am sure she could provide some information to you:

Khulud is the International Relations & Development Coordinator, at the Isha L'Isha - Haifa Feminist Center, a Feminist activist and a Palestinian citizen of Israel.

And Arda is an activist who has written often about the issues and challenges women face in the region every day.

Wishing you all the best,
Director of Operations, World Pulse

some resources

hey lenny,
though i have not yet traveled in/out of gaza, i have looked into it several times in recent years. for one reason or another (mostly because i got divorced) i haven't been able to afford a trip yet, but i have culled a number of resources. here are some of the organizations i recommend checking into or contacting for advice and information:

the international solidarity movement: (click on "join us in palestine" for all sorts of good information)

the free gaza movement: (this is the group that has sailed ships into gaza with relief supplies)

the palestinian anti-apartheid wall campaign: (they offer activist resources on their site)

the israeli committee against house demolitions: (run by jeff halper - an inspiring american jew who has dedicated himself to fighting apartheid in israel/palestine)

finally, this blog is incredibly detailed and has extensive links to other blogs, resource sites, and statistics. during the siege last year, i read it daily (or five times daily, on some days) for painfully real stories about what it was like on the ground. the author may be willing to engage in a dialogue with you about entering gaza:

best of luck!
