Is that right?
I knew a couple of the crossings had been attacked.
The Karni crossing is only one crossing. It's not *the* crossing for Gaza. There are like seven or eight of them. And again, that doesn't account for the fact that Israel was not meeting the AMA standards prior to these attacks.
Really, this is a microcosm of the whole issue:
If you oppress people, they will seek extralegal solutions. If you push them to the brink, make them feel like their very survival is at stake, they will radicalize. And they will embrace assholes like Hamas.
Israel's insanity on restricting exports bullshit feeds these attacks
. The reason to attack these points is largely deflated if you allow exports to flow.
