During this past week, Egypt has blocked all aid into Gaza that came from Egypt.

Egypt has refused to coordinate with Israel on the entry of aid into Gaza from the Rafah Crossing due to Israel’s “unacceptable escalation,” Egypt’s state-affiliated Alqahera News satellite TV reported on Saturday, citing a senior official.

The official also said that Egypt held Israel responsible for the deterioration of the situation in the Gaza Strip.
Although Israel has reopened Kerem Shalom and some fuel has gone into Gaza from there, humanitarian aid like food and medicines has not been allowed through the crossing since last Sunday, according to Scott Anderson, a senior official at UNRWA, the main U.N. agency that aids Gaza.

One reason is that Egypt, where most of the aid for Gaza is collected and loaded, is resisting sending trucks toward Kerem Shalom, according to two U.S. officials and another Western official who are involved in the aid operation, as well as two Israeli officials. 
Where is the world demand for Egypt to release the aid, ready to be driven into Gaza? Where are the social media posts and the caplus protests and the op-eds condemning Egypt for deliberately withholding aid from Gaza? 

Why does no one want to pressure Egypt?

From reading the media, one gets the impression that before last week, the lion's share of aid to Gaza came via Egypt through the Rafah crossing. But it turns out that this is wrong. Far more aid has been coming through Israel's Kerem Shalom crossing, as this UNRWA graphic shows. Here are the comparisons for every month:

Since January, Israel has sent more truckloads into Gaza than Egypt has. Moreover, the number of trucks from Egypt have gone down since the first months of the war. At the moment, more truckloads total have gone through Kerem Shalom than through Rafah to Gaza, 14,000 to 11,000. 

What media has reported this? None I have seen.

Part of the reason the world keeps castigating Israel is because the media and politicians refuse to say anything negative about Egypt. Israel must be framed as malicious and genocidal, and the truth - even according to UNRWA, which has done all it can to demonize Israel's aid efforts - shows that between Egyptian refusal to allow tens of thousands of Gazans to flee there,  Egypt extorting bribes for  thousands more to come as "VIPs," Egypt's refusing half of the medical cases that need to exit Gaza, and now Egypt's refusal to send aid that Gazans need every day, it seems Egypt cares less about Gaza civilians than Israel does.

And what news source will risk reporting that?
