For months Palestinian mobs in Gaza have been attacking the Israeli border with stones, burning tires, rockets and gunfire. Some people, like Jeremy Corbyn, claim that these are “peaceful demonstrations,” bullshit! Even a cursory glance at the videos show them as extremely violent skirmishes with the intention of breaching the border and pouring into Israel to cause mayhem and death. Only those who believe the Palestinians can do no wrong because Israel is a “colonialist, apartheid regime” can support such attacks.
They are called “the march of return,” but this is futile because these violent elements will never get into Israel or be allowed to “return”. How many of them are in fact so-called refugees? Precious few, since they would have to be now at least 70 years old, and the majority of the mob are young men out for violent action. The whole process is really a performance created by Hamas, the Islamist terrorist organization, to gain PR. For them the more people and the more children killed the better, they care nothing (like ISIS and Hezbollah) for the lives of their own people, as long as it keeps them in the headlines.
Israel has announced many times that they will not allow our border to be breached by a mob. No country would allow this, certainly not the US or UK (what would Corbyn do if he were PM, would he open the border at Dover to all illegal immigrants?) The IDF is guarding the border and will use live fire when necessary. So it is not surprising that in yesterday’s violent attack 7 people were killed and several injured. They have been warned. If they want to make this sacrifice for their futile cause, so be it! We’ll accommodate them.
On a political level, the cause of “return” 70 years after the event of their voluntarily leaving, is ridiculous. Nowhere in the world are the descendants of refugees themselves considered to be refugees, no one has a “right of return” its a propaganda fiction, that many liberals are conned into believing. Let them continue to “march” and throw themselves at the border, it is a futile exercise fit only for the insane and the brain-washed.
Meanwhile a dispute had developed between Hamas in Gaza and Pres. Abbas and the PA on the West Bank, because he refused to pay Israel for the gas being piped into Gaza. So the supply was stopped, The Qatar stepped in and agreed to pay for it, so against the PA’s wishes Israel started to supply the gas to Gaza again. But, today after the severe riots at the border Defense Minster Avigdor Lieberman announced that Israel will stop the supply until the rioting stops. Thai is a good decision, many people consider it strange that Israel should supply gas, water, electricity, food and medicine to its enemy that is attacking us continuously. Now there is a price to pay for these border skirmishes.
