Oddly enough, I blame Israel for this continuing nonsense.
For the simple reason that no other country in the world would permit such harassment without forcing the offending group to leave.
But four major wars have been fought against Israel, in which the Paleos have openly supported the foreign armies trying to destroy Israel, but after the Israeli victories, *nothing* was done against their fifth column Paleos. Nothing!
Common sense dictates that the restive Gazans should have long ago been pushed into Egypt, one way or another. The Israelis could have been brutal in doing so, or they could have been “nice guys”, to assuage their overwhelming feelings of stupid guilt, and given each and every one of the Paleos cash on the way out the door. BUT THEY WOULD BE GONE. For good. Never, ever to darken Israel’s doorstep again.
This is simple enough to understand. And until Israel does what every other country in the world would do, this problem will continue. With Israelis being murdered. Indiscriminate attacks falling down on their heads. Infiltrators bent on homicide bombings.
Why, oh why can’t Israel do the sensible thing and make an end of it? Their overwhelming guilt at the thought of doing so is insane. Unjustifiable. Mentally ill.
They could end the problem tomorrow, and after some brief hubbub, the rest of the world would forget about it, thankful that the continual, nagging, festering wound that is the Paleos has *finally* stopped.
And, of course, if the Paleos decided to annoy their Egyptian hosts even in the slightest, the Egyptians would not hesitate for a moment to discipline them. And nobody would care one whit.
I don’t dissagree with your position. But keep this in mind. Even if Israel were to completely move all the Palestinians out of Gaza and into Egypt, the vacuum would fill with newer “Palestinians”.
Israel would have to take the territory and abolish the existence of “Gaza”.
The world would cry “Genocide”!!!!
I long ago advocated for 1 Kilometer of Gaza to be taken by the Israelis for every terrorist attack emanating from Gaza.
Starting in the North.
The problem takes care of itself, pretty quickly.
