This is the Time to Topple the Ghetto Wall, Again
A Comment by Tony Sayegh
The Palestinians are now subjected to double genocide: a Zionist holocaust directed at the entire population, especially the civilians, which has claimed more than 80 killed in just 3 days, and a tight blockade imposed jointly by Israel and Egypt. While hundreds of wounded are crowding hospitals and dozens more die because they can't reach hospitals since there is no fuel for the ambulances, the hospitals themselves have run out of medicine and have no power to operate. The rest of the population is starved with no drinking water and no power or fuel.
This situation has reached the explosive boiling point. The Palestinians in Gaza can't be expected to be marched meekly to the Zionist slaughter house while still living with the blockade. If they are going to die they might as well storm the ghetto wall at Rafah again, to reach food, water, medicine, etc.
This is the time to expose the complicity of all Arab regimes, especially those of Abbas and Egypt, in this calculated bloodbath. It is time for a massive Palestinian Intifada everywhere the Palestinians live, especially in Gaza and the West Bank. Hundreds of thousands should march and say, we have had enough and we are not going to take it anymore!
Hamas should organize and lead the march on the ghetto wall at Rafah. We know that the Egyptian soldiers, whose numbers have doubled with the permission of Israel, are there to protect Israel. This is not an exaggeration, but these are the words of Ehud Olmert. Egypt's Foreign Minister, Abu Al Gheit, had threatened to break the legs of any Palestinians who dare break the siege. I am sure that the USraeli orders to them are to kill and not just break legs.
Expose the full complicity of USrael and the Arab regimes. Let Al-Jazeera show Palestinians being slaughtered by Israel in Jabalya and by Egypt in Rafah. This is the reality, why keep it secret? Expose it in its gory details to the world.
