I do not have anything else to add.
We can honestly agree that the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is a rather complex and complicated one, where the two involved parties have a fair set of demands. However what Israel is doing these days (the Administration supported by a majority of Israelis), no matter how you look at it, is absolutely over the top.
This is an extract from the report UN/OCHA published some hours ago:
But the Israeli Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni thinks that “there’s no humanitarian crisis in the Gaza Strip”.
Based on data and not in propaganda, UNRWA has just launched an urgent appeal requesting funds to cover the most pressing humanitarian requirements. Karen AbuZayd (UNRWA Commissioner General) said: “In my eight years in UNRWA, the urgency of an appeal for the people here has never been so acute. I am appalled and saddened when I see the suffering around me”.
UNRWA is also accepting individual donations through the following two banks:
Arab Bank PLC
UNRWA USD Current account100191-4-510

For my Spanish colleagues: también se puede donar a través del Comité Español de la UNRWA y de La Caixa (ver Guerra Eterna).
