    Egypt occupied Gaza from 1948-1967. They held the "felaheen" (the name they called the Arabs who lived there) under dusk to dawn curfew every single day of those 19 years. No Egyptian was ever referred to the Hague, Dutch. No UN resolution was EVER passed condemning this Occupation; No angelic ISM folks ever went to help. The Israeli Occupation of Gaza was the result of Egyptian aggression. The Arabs were supposed to win (according to themselves) but they lost. When offered all of it back, immediately after the Six Day War they said their notorious "three nos" and have spent every day since then convincing people like Dutch that the entire blame for the sorry plight (and it is!) of the Palestinian people lies only at the hands of the "Zionist aggressor, Apartheid wall-building, land-stealing, murderous Jews" . Just because a whole bunch of people are able, every day, to parrot back a bunch of Palestinian propaganda doesn't mean that truth comes amy closer to the surface.
