Until I read Edwin Black's story on Egypt's blockade of Gaza--air, land, and sea for five years (see Cairo Tightens Egypt's Blockade of Gaza After Sinai Terrorist Attack
, Page One, August 7, 2012), I had zero idea that the Arabs next door blockaded Gaza for the same reasons Israel does--terrorism. It has been going on for five years. Why has the media ignored this? From everything I have read the blockade is from the Israel side. Now it seems the bigger blockade is from Egypt. Now THAT is news. Thank you for turning on the lights.
