Gaza rioters burn the access routes to their aid

Last week Hamas-sponsored rioters on the Gaza border burned their own aid. This weekend those “peaceful protestors” who only want to murder Israelis and claim victimhood burned the border crossing terminal where the humanitarian aid crosses over to Gaza. In addition they blew up the gas pipeline through which Israel pumps fuel gas.

Just watch this short video to see the extent of the destruction they caused to themselves:


Israeli officials who came to inspect the area were astonished at the scale of destruction:

Military and administrative officials toured the Israeli side of the Kerem Shalom goods crossing with the Gaza Strip Saturday, a day after Palestinian rioters torched gas pipes serving the territory as well as electricity infrastructure and a conveyor belt used to transfer goods into the Strip.

The damage to the crossing is thought to be in the tens of millions of shekels.

On unnamed official told the Ynet news site, “We were astonished by the devastation and destruction Palestinians left in their wake. They’re bringing a disaster upon themselves.”

That last sentence could describe the entire history of the Palestinians, but particularly of Gaza.

Kerem Shalom is the only goods crossing between Israel and Gaza, which already suffers from a severe energy shortage.

Defence Minister Avigdor Liberman has now ordered the crossing to be closed until further notice.

Israel’s Defense Forces (IDF) announced on Saturday that Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman has approved closing the Kerem Shalom humanitarian crossing in Gaza from tomorrow (Sunday) until further notice, due to Friday’s destruction of gas pipelines and the security fence at the crossing.

Israel’s Defense Forces issued a statement on Friday, saying “The crossing will remain closed until the damages caused by the riots are repaired and will reopen in accordance with a situation assessment. The Hamas terror organization, which in recent weeks has been carrying out terrorist attacks in the guise of riots, is harming the well-being of Gazans and paralyzing their ability to go about their daily lives.”

“Israel and many countries around the world work to deliver goods such as food, equipment and fuel to Gaza’s citizens, initiatives which are prevented by the Hamas terror organization’s actions,” the statement added.

Saturday’s statement from the IDF said that Hamas is responsible for everything that happens in the Gaza Strip.

    From a MOT buddy this AM:

    Where else on the planet is a terrorist group in charge of an entire population of millions and marches them to their deaths by live fire in an attempt to invade another country for public attention and to brand their neighbours as brutal murderers? Answer…ONLY GAZA!!!!!!!!!!!

    Truly, this resembles a low-budget zombie film. But, given the stakes involved, the IDF is going to have to take whatever steps are necessary to ensure the integrity of the border. “Naqba Day” leads right into Ramadan- what lunacy will Israel have to confront from the Dark Agers in the coming month?

      Didn’t Iran also do this during the Iran-Iraq war? Or was it the Iraqis? Can’t remember any more. Either way, it’s the same mindset. As you say, like a zombie film.

      Also, only the Muslims use their holy month as a launching pad for extreme violence. Every other religion use their holy days for celebrations, festivities, gifts and meals. But Ramadan? Let’s blow up something. Let’s stab some Jews or burn a church. Preferably both.

      And the world accepts it as completely normal, that’s the worst of it. Why are they not challenged? I can’t bear it.

    Earl’s buddy is absolutely right. And the contrast with the response, world-wide, to Israel’s response to Iran’s attack couldn’t be starker. Bahrein & Saudi Arabia, the US (of course, no contest), much of the EU, sundry other countries world-wide, all agree that israel has an absolute right to protect its territorial integrity.

    Yet many of the same people fail to recognise (or even publicly accept) that the dividing line between Israel and Gaza is (at worst) an internationally agreed truce line and, at best, a de facto international border. As such, it is inviolate under international law. It follows that Israel has exactly the same right to protect its territorial integrity as against Iranian rockets. And we’re not talking about illegal economic migrants here, who if shot, as opposed to being thrown back across the fence, there would be a justifiable outcry.

    But then this is Israel we’re talking about, of course: virtually everyone’s favourite target when they can’t be bothered to think about the topic.

    • anneinpt says:

      You’re spot on Brian with your last paragraph: Israel is everyone’s favourite target.

      i’ve been having conniptions here watching BBC and Sky. Challenging every Israeli spokesman that our response is disproportionate because “how many Israelis have been killed?”.

      How is THAT a question?? Because we know how to defend ourselves it makes it an unfair playing field?? I am outraged! Even though I shouldn’t be, and I should be used to it, I REFUSE to become used to it.

      The foreign media are pigs, the way they treat Israel.

    Well Thank G-d the US embassy opened and at the same time loads of Gazans/Hamas people killed and injured in unprecedented riots.Of course all the expected sources want Israel reviled and hearings are demanded in the various”humanitarian”forums.But the US stood against them and with us declaring that Hamas is to blame for the deaths,and injuries to everyone including the children.That Israel has a right to defend its borders from these murderous masses.
    Today is Nakba day.Is there a Nakba day for Jews thrown off their lands in Arab or pre war Europe?
    At least all of Israel (except for some really left wingers)stand with unity against these rioters and with our precious soldiers.
    It’s time too,that Israeisl does not have to spend our hard earned money fixing Kerem (not quite)Shalom .Let the Gazans or humanitarian UN do gooders fix it.
