8. Egypt Shuts Down The Smuggling Tunnels

 

I want to thank you for a reasoned response. Here is a link showing why Egypt recently shut down the smuggling tunnels.

My point is that Egypt has a border with Gaza and does not allow the free flow of trade, like Israel. They are complicit in the imprisonment of the Gaza people. Egypt is given a free pass in this conflagration.
I concede Israel does have settlements that are infringing precious land that is available. Egypt has sided with the Palestinians when it is politically convenient. Right now it is not convenient.
