Egypt is Part of the Blockade
By Micah Halpern

Thursday June 3, 2010

I've Been Thinking:

Israel has taken it on the chin for blockading Gaza.
But let's look at some of the facts surrounding the blockade.

It is not a secret. Israel has been shutting off sea and land access to Hamas in order to make certain that few weapons, ammo and rockets will get into Gaza and into the hands of terrorists. Whatever gets into Gaza will, ultimately, be used to attack Israel.

Not only Israel. Egypt is also a part of the blockade. Over the past six months Egypt has done an admirable job of keeping their border with Gaza blocked.

But despite it all, Israel still delivers 10,000 tons of humanitarian aid per week to Gaza. And yesterday Israel finished checking the flotilla's cargo and decided to send the safe cargo to Gaza - over land, not sea.

And what happened in the end?
Hamas refused to accept the aid that arrived via Israel.
