TONY EASTLEY: Israel's security cabinet has begun discussions on ways to ease the blockade in Gaza to allow in more humanitarian aid, without compromising Israel's security.
Israel maintains its blockade is essential to stop the supply of arms to the militant Hamas regime.
While some governments are pushing for an easing of the blockade, the French broadcasting regulator is taking a hardline against Hamas and its Al-Aqsa TV channel, which has millions of viewers in Europe.
Middle East correspondent Anne Barker reports.
(Sound of TV show)
ANNE BARKER: With the sound turned down this kids show on Al-Aqsa Television looks like a new take on Bugs Bunny.
But Assoud the rabbit is far less benign than his carrot chomping colleague.
Last year the show's Islamist producers in Gaza killed him off on the set, as the victim of an Israeli bombing.
The rabbit's dying words were a message to Palestinian children to glorify his death as a martyr.
"Tell the children Assoud has died", he says, "as a hero, a martyr."
ANNE BARKER: Stories like this, with their messages of martyrdom and death are commonplace on Al-Aqsa Television, which is owned by Hamas.
And they're made attractive to children with the use of characters like Assoud or Farfour, a Mickey Mouse lookalike, who also died when Israeli soldiers apparently beat him to death.
In fact, most of the channel's viewers are outside Gaza.
Al-Aqsa Television has an estimated 20 million viewers in Europe, the Middle East and North Africa via satellites in Europe and the Gulf.
But now the French broadcasting regulator, CSA, is banning Al-Aqsa TV in Europe on the grounds it incites hatred.
It comes after a long campaign by one Israeli organisation, Palestinian Media Watch, whose director is Itamar Marcus.
ITAMAR MARCUS: Repeatedly on Al-Aqsa Television you have religious leaders who talk about the genocide of the Jews, you have religious and political leaders who talk about going to war against the west.
And if Muslims around the world continue to hear this message and get incited, you never know what people might act, based on these messages.
ANNE BARKER: Al-Aqsa Television says the CSA ban will cost it 70 per cent of its viewers, but it'll continue broadcasting in Africa and the Middle East.
One station representative, Mohammed Mansour, denies the channel incites hatred and says the ban is designed to silence criticism of Israel.
MOHAMMED MANSOUR: It's not hate actually; it's exposing the criminals, the war criminals of the Zionist regime.
ANNE BARKER: But how can you justify programs that teach children for example that suicide bombings are heroic?
MOHAMMED MANSOUR: Actually we don't glorify the suicide bombings. We are only showing what is the cause of the suicide bombings, they are occupation, they are depression, they are Israeli are demolishing our homes and killing our sons in a very daily basis.
ANNE BARKER: Even without Al-Aqsa Television, Hamas has a raft of other media outlets, including two radio stations, two newspapers, a magazine and an active film industry.
