Since Egypt now counts as part of Gaza, does that mean Israel gets to occupy Egypt to defend itself?

Your real ignorant........Egypt just like Israel has a blockade against Hamas and has had her borders closed to Hamas ever since Israel did the same thing!
I think he made that comment because that video is actually of a protest in Egypt.

Why is it we hear so little about people protesting the end of the Egyptian blockade?

It's sad that someone couldn't figure that out in the first five seconds of that video.

Now I'm betting the first reply won't be changed to reflect the reality people misrepresenting protest videos to attack and downplay the deaths of Palestinian people though ;)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blockade_of_the_Gaza_Strip

http://utopiayouarestandinginit.com/2014/07/31/the-egyptian-blockade-of-the-gaza-strip-is-the-real-target-of-hamas/

David Brooks argues that Egypt is the real target of the Hamas missiles.

After the recent military coup in Egypt, the military leaders closed roughly 95% of the tunnels that connected Egypt to Gaza. In 2013-2014, Egypt’s military has destroyed most of the 1,200 tunnels which were used to smuggle food, weapons and other goods into Gaza, including flooding them with sewage.
Hamas derived 40% of its tax revenue from tariffs on goods that flow through those tunnels. One estimate puts the economic losses at nearly a fifth of the Gazan GDP.

Hamas couldn’t strike at Egypt to end the blockade so it attacked Israel in a proxy war.

If Hamas could emerge as the heroic fighter, if Arab TV screens were filled with dead Palestinian civilians, then public outrage might force Egypt to lift the blockade.

When Mousa Abu Marzook, the deputy chief of the Hamas political bureau, dismissed a plea for a cease-fire, he asked


What are 200 martyrs compared with lifting the siege?

Hamas is firing rockets at Tel Aviv and sending terrorists through tunnels into Israel while aiming at Cairo.

The Gaza Strip has two borders: both Egypt and Israel restrict trade with the Gaza. The Egyptian blockade of the Gaza Strip is biting much more than the Israeli blockade.

Whatever you need to tell yourself. Of course some of us are actually aware that "die-in"protests have been held all over the world.
I wonder what anyone thinks that would *ever* accomplish other than proving tackiness is universal?
