When Will the IDF Take the Philadelphi Corridor?

If Israel does not hold the Philadelphi Corridor, then no one else will prevent the import of rockets into Gaza. Euro observers will not do the job. The EU is in the main hostile to Israel anyhow -- especially the UK. If Israeli troops are not sitting in the border zone during negotiations, then any demand Israel makes to put troops there will have little weight.

Under the Oslo accords, Israel had the right to full control over the Gaza side of the Egyptian border up to a width of 600 meters. Israel never gave up that right which was recognized by the Arabs, the PLO, and the United States.

Now is the time for Israeli troops to take the border zone of Gaza with Egypt.

Make Red Cross [ICRC] Access to Gilad Shalit a precondition for negotiating a cease fire.
