The Gaza You’ve Never Seen
It’s common to hear from uninformed observers that the Gaza Strip is a “big concentration camp” — and that the IDF is to blame for the difficulties of day-to-day life in the area.
That’s not the whole story, to say the least. The Gaza Strip is ruled by Hamas, a terrorist group that is sworn to Israel’s destruction. Rockets fired from the strip routinely strike southern Israel. With these simple facts in mind, it is easy to understand why the IDF cannot allow imports into Gaza without first inspecting the contents and ensuring that there are no weapons.
