Gaza Road Through Israel

Dry Bones cartoon - Gaza Corridor
In Wednesday's posting, called Gaza Moves into Israel? I included a cartoon about Israel's being forced to accept Gazan convoys on Israeli territory. I commented on being angered by what we'd been forced to accept. Now there's a DEBKAfile report that all of Israel’s security branches have sent strong written protests to Israel's government.

"The protests came from the top levels of Israel’s armed forces, the Shin Beit and all other intelligence services and the police. Rarely before have so many expressions of alarm been rushed to the head of government by all of top security agencies."

Feeling the need to explain calmly what the fuss is about I did the above cartoon. It's a simple formula: explain the plan for Israel by showing what the same plan would be if applied to another country. The result is a clear picture of the situation Israel now faces.
