Fencing in the Palestinians
Posted by: McQ on Thursday, March 06, 2008

Egypt, like most other countries who have dealt with them, isn't too keen on giving them increased access:
Egypt is building a 10-foot-high concrete wall along its border with Gaza to prevent any new breaches after Palestinian militants blasted through the barrier in January to escape a blockade of their territory, an official said.

The new wall replaces a mixed barbed-wire, iron and concrete barrier which was breached in several places when militants blew it open with explosives, added the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not allowed to talk to the media.
No doubt it will be in place well before anything similar shows up on our southern border.

"Apartheid Wall"! Let’s see if the enablers and useful idiots that derided Israel’s building of a security fence mention a single word about the Egyptians’ wall, a real attempt, as you titled this, to fence them in.

It is time for the entire world to turn their backs on the Palestinians. We’ve given them billions of dollars, numerous chances to try to build a civil society..and all they know is how to murder. And lest anyone come up with the stupidity about how Israel kills them, so this is just retaliation, the Palestinians have managed to kill each other in internecine battles, "honor killings", kangaroo-court executions and even "work accidents" (when they are preparing a bomb or rocket meant for Israelis and it blows up as they are constructing it) than Israel has managed to kill.

But I would love to see the hypocritical relief organizations, the U.N. "rights" councils and the Europeans mention the Egyptian wall. NONE will do so. They will only excoriate Israel.

"They will only excoriate Israel."

And when it cannot be blamed on Israel they chicken out.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but wasn’t Egypt the ones that Israel took Gaza from in the first place? Didn’t they spend years harping about how they wanted it back?
