I believe there is a syntax error on the first icap_access line. I
believe you need "deny" there. You should see something like this when
you start Squid:

| aclParseAccessLine: expecting 'allow' or 'deny', got '!mimeblockp'.

If you think that Squid should fail to start when the configuration file
contains errors please join the club and help me convince others that
the current policy of skipping faulty squid.conf rules is wrong.
