    The fact is that Israel completely folded on this, why, who knows? What should be done is to make the border between Gaza/Sinai and Israel an approximation of the old Berlin Wall. Mine fields, attack dogs, and a shoot first policy for infiltrations, maybe some sort of electrified fence and seal the whole thing off with some sort of laser technology. Not one Arab should be allowed into or through Israel from Gaza for any reason. They can get medical supplies from Egypt, they should be cut off from the power grid and the navy should seal off their coast from Israel. If a boat gets into Israeli waters, sink it. Additionally, Uhm ul Fahm is not a loyal part of the country, does not contribute to the country and is a classic fifth column. I'm not an expert on Israeli geography but if there is any way to make a border adjustment and put this nest of vipers outside the border of Israel then it seems like a completely logical course of action. Last but not least, is David James Vickery still enjoying the budding manhood and robust physicality of Palestinian youth.
