10. If you're insulted...

 

... by my pointing out that there is no way you have drive through a wall or a checkpoint in Gaza to get to a beach in Gaza then I'm sorry but you're going to have to remain insulted.

Yes, you're right, you have to drive through a checkpoint to get a an Israeli beach from Gaza because it's an international border -- Americans have to go through a checkpoint to get to Mexican beaches, Germans have to go through a checkpoint to get to French beaches (at least since 1944). Are you unclear how international borders work?

Conversely, Israelis would have to go through a checkpoint to get to Gaza beaches -- or would, if Gaza allowed Jews into their country, which they don't.

Read your own map -- all the beaches in Gaza are on the opposite side of Gaza from Israel. It's all pretty clear.
