How to build a border wall

The President of Mexico—or Egypt, or some other place, who can really say for sure—shows us the way.

What is the Israeli Defense Force supposed to do with a million or so Palestinian refugees as their operations to kill every last Hamas wipes the Gaza Strip from north to south like a giant, well-armed squeegee?

The President of Egypt, Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, who is sometimes mistaken for the President of Mexico, has an answer to that vexing question — and it’s something of a completely routine miracle how the mainstream media and the Global Professional Outrage Machine have both ignored it.

The essence of el-Sisi’s answer is: “Do what you will to the Palestinians, Israel, but they aren’t coming here to Egpyt (or maybe Mexico).”

In practice, it’s much easier just to show you how Egypt protects its border with the Gaza Strip.

Follows, a Twatter/X/whatevs vid, which I won’t bother embedding here. Then:

That’s what Egypt’s border wall looks like from the Gaza side near the city of Rafah. There are concrete barriers in front of what appears to be a steel wall — 30 feet tall is my guesstimate — featuring three layers of concertina wire. It looks a little like somebody took a World War I obstacle and turned it up on one end. 

As Aviva Klompas, who posted the video clip noted, “Egypt REALLLLLY doesn’t want any Palestinian refugees.”

That might seem strange on the face of it since, for 20 years, Gaza was part of Egypt. It gets more curious still when you realize that if Egypt had wanted Gaza back, it could have gotten it (along with the entire Sinai peninsula) in its 1979 peace treaty with Israel.

Instead, then-Egyptian leader Anwar Sadat told Israeli PM Menachem Begin, “Nah, we’re good. You keep Gaza.” Sadat left a few hundred thousand fellow Arabs to the tender mercies of those hated Zionist colonial occupiers because it was the least bad option for Egypt.

Before the refounding of Israel in 1947, Jewish settlers to the British Palestine Mandate (and pre-WWI, to Ottoman Turkey’s South Syira province) often called themselves Palestinians. The local Arabs were a collection of mostly Syrians, plus some Egyptians, Lebanese, and others. “Palestinian” didn’t come into vogue for the Arab refugees of the Israeli War for Independence until the 1960s — and that was at the Soviet-funded behest of Yassar Arafat and his Palestinian Liberation Organization.

Some folks, who I’m otherwise inclined to agree with on Middle East issues, insist that there still isn’t any such thing as a Palestinian. But I must respectfully disagree.

Generations spent unprecedented as refugees, mixed up with the awfulness typical of occupation and lavish funding for terrorist leaders, have resulted in a uniquely Palestinian national identity.

It is also uniquely toxic.

It is at that. So, since they have again and again demonstrated their unwillingness to rethink their position and prefer to double, triple, and quadruple down on A) the destruction of Israel; B) the unquestioned supremacy of Pisslam, established by global jihad; and C) the extermination of every last Jew on Earth, let them perish from said toxicity, then.

While we’re all waiting for that suicide-by-Netanyahu to transpire, Bayou Peter has a question for Amerika v2.0’s “pResident”-ish*** Tyrantosaurus Wrex.

The new border wall was started immediately after the October 7th terrorist attacks in Israel, and it’s already been completed – very fast work. Egypt clearly had a pretty good idea what was coming, and wanted to shut down its border with Gaza ahead of the streams of refugees who would doubtless have attempted to cross. It looks like it succeeded.

Let’s see, now…If President Biden wants to improve US relations with both Egypt and Israel, why doesn’t he hire the Egyptian firms who built that wall so well and so quickly to protect the USA’s border with Mexico in the same way? I’m sure their prices would be a lot lower than local companies, and they’ve got the experience to work fast and well. They could even please the migrants by hiring them as itinerant laborers to build the wall – provided they ended up on the Mexican side of the wall when it was complete.

The only thing missing are lethal defenses to back up the passive ones. Egypt’s taken care of that by sending tanks and armored personnel carriers to patrol the wall. We could do likewise. Employment for the National Guard, perhaps?

Excellent questions, both of them, the answers to which we already know, unfortunately. Which foreknowledge suggests another regrettably familiar question, namely: what is to be done about it?

  1. If, at any time since 1960, TPTB in this country wanted our southern border secured, it would have been so long since, and remained so to this very minute.

    Ergo, TPTB in this country want no such thing.

    That is everything you need to know about illegal immigration, in under 20 seconds.

    It’s not because “we can’t afford a border wall”, nor because “we don’t have enough agents”, nor any other cock-and-bullshit story ginned up to wiener out of doing what is necessary.

    They Don’t Want To Do It, so it remains undone, and will as long as the current folks in the Uniparty are running things.

    The day that policy changes, you’ll know the Uniparty is no longer in power. Not before, and nothing less than that will prove it.

    1. It’s the difference between declaratory policy, and actual policy, between what is loudly claimed, and what is actually done. The only one that counts is the latter. Talk is both cheap, and expensive.

Charles Bukowski

“A slave is one who waits for someone to come and free him.”
Ezra Pound

“The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it’s profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater.”

Bertrand de Jouvenel

"It is terrible to contemplate how few politicians are hanged."
GK Chesterton

"I predict that the Bush administration will be seen by freedom-wishing Americans a generation or two hence as the hinge on the cell door locking up our freedom. When my children are my age, they will not be free in any recognizably traditional American meaning of the word. I’d tell them to emigrate, but there’s nowhere left to go. I am left with nauseating near-conviction that I am a member of the last generation in the history of the world that is minimally truly free."

"If the laws of God and men, are therefore of no effect, when the magistracy is left at liberty to break them; and if the lusts of those who are too strong for the tribunals of justice, cannot be otherwise restrained than by sedition, tumults and war, those seditions, tumults and wars, are justified by the laws of God and man."
John Adams

Frederick Douglass
