Build That Wall, Between Egypt and Gaza

Do good fences make good neighbors? Your guess is as good as mine. 

At the least, nations around the world do know that building walls is good policy. Israel did it along the West Bank, and it worked. Nations like New Zealand and Australia protected their citizens from the coronavirus by shutting down immigration. The Trump administration is trying to overcome judicial and bureaucratic obstacles, to build a wall along our Southern border.

Now, Egypt is building a wall to separate it from Hamas-controlled Gaza. (via Maggie’s Farm)  Keep in mind, Hamas is funded by Iran. The Obama administration sent a planeload of cash to Tehran, and even admitted that some of the money would go to support Hamas and Hezbollah. It did not bother anyone on the left. Would you expect anything different from Jeremiah Wright’s protege?

Anyway, Egypt is trying to keep Hamas terrorists out of its territory:

Egypt has recently started constructing a steel wall along its 14-kilometer (7-mile) border with Gaza, eyewitnesses said.

The eyewitnesses told Anadolu Agency that the Egyptian army started the construction of a 7-meter high wall along the Gazan border and will be equipped with electronic sensors.

They added that so far 1 kilometer of the wall has been built from the eastern side of Karam Abu Salem (Kerem Shalom).

The construction of the wall came in parallel with a concrete wall, whose construction started in February and almost half of it has been completed.

So, Egypt continues to reject Palestinian terrorism. In that it has been joined by the Gulf Arab states. Even Saudi Arabia has quietly ceased supporting the Palestinian cause.

The only group that continues to support the Palestinian cause, aside from the neo-Nazis in Iran, are liberal Western Jews. Draw your conclusions.
