A humanitarian aid convoy carrying food and medical supplies has arrived in the Gaza Strip nearly a month after it embarked from the UK.
Members of the much-delayed Viva Palestina convoy began passing through Egypt's Rafah border crossing into Gaza on Wednesday, waving Palestinian flags and raising their hands in peace signs.

You can't blame Egypt for that. They receive billions of economic and military aid from the US with the mere purpose to protect Israel. Egypt is primarily dependent on agricultural and tourist income, making the decision to choose the American/Israeli side very much understandable.
Between FY 1979 and FY 2008, the United States provided a total of $89.73 billion to Israel, and $62.36 billion to Egypt.

I still don't understand why humanitarian aid can be delayed when the people are on the brink of dying from not having the necessities of life.
My biggest problem with this entire situation is simple... When will the world rise up and demand explanations on why the FACT that Israel is committing extreme and cruel crimes against humanity that have been going on for so long and still, nothing is being done to stop them.
Why are people so afraid of Israel? Why are people afraid to confront them?
