3 DAYS AFTER 4 SOLDIERS KILLED: Biden Forces Israel To Reopen Kerem Shalom Crossing

Israel on Wednesday morning re-opened the Kerem Shalom Crossing into Gaza, only four days after Hamas rocket fire killed four soldiers at the site and wounded ten others, several seriously, and despite the fact that Hamas rocket fire at the area continued through Tuesday.

The IDF spokesperson stated: “Today, the Coordination of Government Activities in the Territories [COGAT] reopened the Kerem Shalom Crossing for the entry of humanitarian aid into Gaza after it was closed due to Hamas’ attacks toward the crossing. Trucks from Egypt carrying humanitarian aid are already arriving at the crossing. The Erez Crossing is also continuing to operate to facilitate the entry of humanitarian aid into Gaza.”

One Israeli social media user responded: “This is mind-blowing. Just how much tons of aid will we transfer into Gaza while the Israeli hostages are eating a piece of bread every day while sitting under gunpoint?! Every second counts. Keep the military pressure in Rafah and free the hostages from these modern-day Nazis.”

US President Joe Biden demanded that Israel reopen the crossing during his phone conversation with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Monday evening.

Just a day ago, the IDF spokesperson announced: “Approximately 18 projectiles were fired from the Rafah area toward the areas of the Kerem Shalom Crossing and Re’im (southern Israel), following the sirens that sounded earlier today. This is the second time in the past few days that projectiles were fired toward the Kerem Shalom Crossing.”

  1. We all know it’s wrong yet BIBI and his party still gave in to the Evil Biden administration

    This BIBI administration is terrible for Jews, how much longer can be tolerated it?

  2. If Biden wants Kerem Shalom open, then let him supply the troops for it. I am sickened by the number of our brethren who got injured or died as a result of our being so careful about their civilians when the Hamas leadership couldn’t care less about them.

  3. Obviously. I am not in favor of helping the terrorists, but I guess the question is legally and halachically, are we allowed to deny food and water and other basic resources to women and children, even if they may be terrorists and training.

  4. Baltimoron,

    Since you’re such a bleeding heart, you certainly make daily basics deliveries to East Baltimore and other disadvantaged neighborhoods in your fine city since they’re food deserts, right? Or are you just a loudmouthed hypocrite?

  5. GadolHadofi, well said. IDF soldiers should absolutely not risk their lives to feed terrorists. The bleeding hearts who feel so badly for these terrorists are invited go there and risk their lives to feed the monsters themselves.

  6. As others above stated; if Biden wants the crossing open, let him send US soldiers to man it. No Israeli soldier should be risking their lives for “civilians” who’d chop them to pieces if they only had the chance.

  7. BaltimoreMaven, I think you asked a good question. I believe the answer is yes, absolutely one is allowed to do so in halacha, and maybe even required to, at least until the enemy surrenders and lays down its arms. See Rambam.
