Abu Ali Express reported that a Gazan man called on the Egyptian people to come to the Rafah crossing and bring down the border barrier.

“Even if (Egyptian president) al-Sisi doesn’t want to, even if the (Egyptian) army doesn’t want to, 100-200 thousand Egyptians who will come to Rafah will be able to knock down the crossing (border barrier) and allow us to live and eat (in Egypt)… like they did when they overthrew President Morsi,” he said. “It’s not the Jews who are imposing a siege on us. Egyptian President A1-Sisi is the one imposing the siege on Gaza. Don’t listen to him.”

GazaPassage is working to ensure nations and organizations around the world help non-combatants leave Gaza for humanitarian purposes.

So far, the UAEAustraliaCanada, Chechnya, and Turkey have taken a GazaPassage Pledge to help non-combatants leave Gaza, and many others are considering it.

GazaPassage has added a second prong to save innocent lives by supporting GazaConstitution.org, whose goal is “to help create the framework of a governing body in the Gaza-of-the-future to ensure an overall and lasting peace.”

Egypt’s position related to keeping Palestinians in Gaza has been consistent while its reasons have shifted.
