10. The point is that the Israeli Govt doesn't stop it, & US & other allies don't make them

Clearly, if Palestinians anywhere in Israel or the West Bank did anything like this, they would be shot dead immediately -- but these yahoos are allowed to do it b/c they are a part of Netanyahu's base; a bit like Trump and the yahoos at Charlottesville.

This is a crime against humanity, and cd be EASILY stopped -- these folx aren't super brave. Any kind of show of force from the Israeli govt and they wd be at bay. And clearly Biden & others don't even want to put their foot down on this solvable unacceptable situation. The Rafah operation is something the govt of Israel is committed to in principle as urgent (I support the World Court decision & think mass demonstrations/strikes internationally shd be mobilized as at least the beginning of enforcement; the US just totally blew off the World Court's ruling against the Contra War attacking Nicaragua some 35+ years ago and there wasn't even an upsurge of militant activism in response. That mistake shdn't be repeated) But here you have something that even minimal pressure from the US shd be able to almost completely curtail

It's just disgusting -- so much howling about student encampments but crickets about this
