The tables have turned

Wow, remember when checkpoints in Israel were used to keep Arabs out of places they weren't supposed to be? Remember when the leftists were monitoring the checkpoints to document abuses of Palestinians by members of the IDF? Do you think they'll show up in Gaza today to monitor the situation down there? Yeah, just about as likely as a blizzard in New York City today.

Beginning yesterday morning at 10:30AM local time, the IDF began using checkpoints against its own citizens-those in the Gaza Strip. The Strip is now a closed military zone and only those with permits (either "permanent" for residents [meaning for the next month or so until they're kicked out] or "temporary" for visitors) can enter these days.

I know it's been discussed for a while but a picture's worth 1,000 words.
