Mordechai Kedar: Terror on the Border – Who is the True Victim?

Aftermath of the Sinai terror attack

Allah, the prophet, the believers, the nation of Islam, the Egyptian people, the entire Palestinian people and especially the people of Gaza, all reject the criminal, aggressive, traitorous murderers, who carried out this terrible crime. We reject them … and call out to Egypt to pursue them, and to punish them with the most severe punishment.”

With this article the writer admits the responsibility of some residents of Gaza for the attack, and he expresses the fear that exists in the Gaza Strip that the Egyptians might close the Rafah Crossing and destroy tunnels, to prevent terrorists from getting into Sinai. He knows that the Egyptian military will do this without hesitation, because when this military becomes enraged it acts “without the constraint of a High Court and human rights organizations,” with great determination and without pity. It may soon become clear that the actual victim of the action on Sunday is, oddly, the Gaza Strip.

Several conclusions can be drawn from this event:

-Israel must retain its intelligence and military capabilities even in neighboring countries with which Israel has a peace agreement.

-Countries that ignore terror will themselves become victims of terror.

-Israel must immediately initiate an explanatory campaign that will show why the blockade on Gaza, whether justifiable or not, is not Israeli, but Egyptian.

-The lack of control that reigns in Sinai may also take hold in Syria, where hundreds of armed groups are also active.

-The State of Israel must be vigilant and attuned to all activities directed against the regime in the entire Negev, because when the laws of planning and building are not enforced it is the beginning of the decline of the rule of law, which may ultimately give way to a situation similar to that which exists in Sinai. No one can say “It can’t happen here.”
