On Walking Into Israel

From here:-

Moreover, despite the nominally civilian character of the marchers...It was [in the 1975 case of Morocco] a conquest despite the lack of arms: A large organized mob can be as forceful as an armed military unit...Many observers have suggested that infiltrations represent a powerful new Arab tool for influencing world opinion against Israel. Yet the march tactic is not civil disobedience: It is an attempt at foreign conquest by the Arab states, just as when Morocco did it. Netanyahu has filed an official complaint with the Security Council. The United States, a permanent member, should press for action on it. If that body wished to demonstrate its impartiality, it would condemn Israel’s invaders as surely as it did Western Sahara’s.
