So which are they? "hostile" or "enemy"?

Evidently the New York Times and CNN can't even seem to agree on what Israel has deemed the Gaza (which of course means Hamas). The New York Times headline from my google front news page states:

Israel Declares Gaza an ‘Enemy Entity

CNN has:

Israel: Hamas-controlled Gaza 'hostile entity'.

From the NY Times, I'm trying to figure out how the US will follow through on this:
Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said Wednesday the United States ''will not abandon the innocent Palestinians in Gaza,'' shortly after Israel declared the territory to be an enemy entity in order to cut off power and fuel supplies to the coastal strip.

Given she then said this:
At the same time, Rice said Gaza, ruled by the Islamic militant Hamas group, ''is a hostile entity to us as well.''

Israel stopped short at cutting off the water supply, but without food, electricity and medical supplies, only providing water is not going to do much to prevent increased human suffering in the Gaza. We've gone to war and overthrown governments for treating people the way people are being allowed to suffer in the Gaza...
