Fun facts for armchair Gaza experts. Israel withdrew from Gaza in 2005. There is no "occupation" there. Strangely, withdrawal did not end attacks from Gaza on Israeli civilians. Also, Egypt maintains the largest Gaza blockade because it fears spillover from Iran-funded Hamas.
Gaza is not part of Israel so there is no "Israeli apartheid." Gaza chooses its own leaders. It was to have been part of a Palestinian state, but the Palestinians rejected it. The border wall was created because Palestinians used to cross the border and blow up Israeli civilians.
Rather than build the infrastructure for a Palestinian state, Gaza's Hamas leaders find it more lucrative to pocket aid money to enrich themselves, send their children on suicide missions to the border, and bathe in worldwide approval when they send rockets to Israeli cities.
