Funny How You Only Ever Hear About

The wall that those nasty evil Zionist Israelis built; who knew that the Egyptians had built one too

RAFAH, Gaza Strip (AP) – Tens of thousands of Palestinians poured from the Gaza Strip into Egypt Wednesday after masked gunmen with explosives destroyed most of the seven-mile wall dividing the border town of Rafah.
The Gazans crossed on foot, in cars or riding donkey carts to buy supplies made scarce by an Israeli blockade of their impoverished territory. Police from the militant group Hamas, which controls Gaza, directed the traffic. Egyptian border guards took no action.
Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman Arye Mekel said Israel has no forces on the Gaza-Egypt border and, “therefore it is the responsibility of Egypt to ensure that the border operates properly, according to the signed agreements.”

I’m shocked that the Egyptians would have a wall segregating their Palestinian Brothers! And not do all within their power to end the “Israeli” blockade.
Gosh, it’s enough to make one think that maybe, just schmaybe there might be something, shall we say, undesirable about the folks that even the Egyptians want to keep them out.

Egypt has largely kept its border with Gaza closed since the Hamas takeover, amid concerns of a spillover of Hamas-style militancy into Egypt.
However, Hamas has orchestrated daily demonstrations on the Gaza-Egypt border in an apparent attempt to appeal to Arab public opinion and pressure Egypt to open the passage.

You don’t say.

    Except that the president of Egypt was quoted on NPR that he is encouraging the Palestinians to come through for shopping and visiting, so long as they aren’t carrying weapons.
    I’m sure there was a “wink, wink, nudge, nudge” that wasn’t properly translated by our benevolent, and unbiased I might add, NPR reporter.
