Gazans are planning "The Great Return March," a gimmick where thousands of Gazans will try to simply walk into Israel on Land Day, March 30, the first day of Passover.

I mentioned this last month before the date was set.

The subtext of the march is that the IDF doesn't act the way that the Arab media portrays it, because that IDF would simply shoot anyone approaching the border.

The IDF is taking this seriously. According to Arab media, it is installing another layer of barbed wire fencing at the border to dissuade anyone from coming.

Palestine Today has a photo essay of Israeli equipment leveling land and installing barbed wire on Tuesday.

Bradley Burston of Haaretz is cheering the idea of Palestinians "returning" to Israel (paywalled):
 Many [IDF] soldiers, in between prayers and calls of duty, silently hoped against hope that day, truly non-violent protest would take the place of interminable, immutable conflict, and drive a wedge into the mechanics of occupation.
I was one of them. And, now that it seems to be happening, this is my confession: I want this to succeed.
But the protest isn't against the "occupation." It is against the existence of the Jewish state.

Is Burston that clueless as to the meaning of "194," the UNGA  resolution that Palestinians purposefully misread to give them the unlimited right to overrun Israel, or is he malicious?

We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.
