Egypt Lifts Its Gaza Blockade For Arms

From an ecstatic Associated Press:

Palestinians wait to cross to Egypt at the Rafah border crossing in the southern Gaza Strip June 1, 2010.

Egypt lifts its side of Gaza blockade for aid

June 1, 2010

CAIRO – An Egyptian official says the government is temporarily lifting its blockade of the Gaza Strip to allow aid into the area a day after Israel raided an international flotilla carrying supplies to the Palestinian territory and killed nine activists.

The governor of northern Sinai, Murad Muwafi, says President Hosni Mubarak ordered the opening of the border crossing to Gaza in the town of Rafah for several days.

Muwafi says the opening of the crossing — which Egypt sealed after Gaza was taken over by Hamas militants in 2007 — is an effort to "alleviate the suffering of our Palestinian brothers after the Israeli attack" on the flotilla.

What joyous tidings.

Of course this means another war, once all of this ‘humanitarian aid’ gets into he hands of the Hamas terrorists Palestinian brothers.

By the way, how many billions of taxpayer dollars do we give Egypt in foreign aid these day?

(US ‘foreign aid’ to Egypt has probably been been more than $50 billion since 1975. But nobody seems to be interested enough to know for sure.)

    Egypt sneaks millions of dollars, even vehicles, through underground tunnels into GAZA already, as the U.S. gives Egypt billions & billions of dollars.

    Israel acted within International Laws as media is not reporting.
    To top it off 2 more ships of activists and Turks are planning to follow suit of the first ship, and hopefully, friendly Israel will leave their paint guns behind.

      Dang there are some violent threatening Youtubes the Palestinians put on the internet. These are more uplifting showing how good they have it.

      Gaza is smuggling in more brands than ever from Egypt, but store owners complain the refrigerators & TV’s, & HP computers tend to get dinged, and worse such as Sharp’s warranties don’t cover damages from smuggling.


      Nice Israel Soldiers saving lives of Hamas terrorists in collapsed smuggling tunnel. lives in collapsed smuggling tunnel. Israel soldiers providing medical treatment & cigarettes to the Hamas. snif.
