The Floodgates of Gaza
Israel is preparing for border clashes now that the floodgates of Gaza have been opened. As you may or may not know, former Egyptian President, Hosni Mubarak, closed the Egyptian side of the Gaza after Hamas kidnapped Israeli corporal, Gilad Shalit in 2007. He hasn’t been released or heard from since but is believed to be alive.
An Arab-organized Facebook campaign is calling for demonstration along Israel’s borders. Let’s define their version of a “demonstration.” Looting, shooting, rioting, throwing baseball-sized rocks at Israelis, burning cars, tires and anything else they can hold a match to and other forms of mayhem. They are just like that; it must be in their genes.
I don’t know what I am more worried about, the opening of the Egyptian side of the border, which would let Hamas and other militants free to commingle and rage or the massive anti-Jewish campaign that the Arabs have waged which at times, I fear they may be winning. The bottom line is that no matter what anyone’s grievances, they have no right to address them by blowing anyone up on a bus, launching rockets or by detonating explosives on a train or anywhere else for that matter.
The only possible bright spot in the whole thing is that the Palestinians will treat the Egyptians the same way that they have treated the Israelis and the rest of the world. And the papers will run stories and everyone will be horrified again until they play the victim card once again.
