Instead of picketing the PM’s office, Shalit supporters have blocked Erez Crossing with tractors and bulldozers. They aim to stop the bank cars from delivering $20 million to Gaza. The move is useless, as the cars will return in a few hours after the protesters go home.
$10 million is intended for the Palestinian Red Cross, which should not be there in the first place, as its purpose, according to its charter, is helping the POWs and immediate refugees. Lacking its own infrastructure in Gaza, the Red Cross cooperates with Hamas in disbursing the money.
When he was in the opposition, Netanyahu slammed Olmert for supplying cash to Gaza.
