The Gaza Palestinians knocked down part of the metal wall put up by the Israelis on the Egyptian border and before Israel withdrew from Gaza. The Palestinians were desperate for food, water, medicines, fuel, and other necessities. The Israelis had cut them off for months claiming that it was in retaliation for Gaza firing rockets into Israel. However, the Palestinians claim the rockets are retaliation and a form of resistance to Israeli theft of Palestinian lands, abuse, imprisonment, and hugely disproportionate attacks that have killed many more Palestinians than Israelis have died from Palestinian rockets.
Hundreds of thousands of Palestinians crossed over into Egypt to obtain basics. It's a wonder they didn't do it long ago.
Both sides need to stop the violence, but the Jews need to stop stealing land in the name of God.
The United States refuses to deal with Hamas, the government in Gaza. The U.S. Bush administration is tacitly going along with the ethnic cleansing by the Jews in Israel. It is part of George W. Bush's sort-of Fundamentalist Calvinism (evil false-Christian-false-Zionism).
