Shocker: Hamas To Let Egypt Close Border

From a relieved Associated Press:

Hamas to allow Egypt border closing

RAFAH, Gaza Strip – Egypt will close the breached border with Gaza on Sunday, and Hamas will not try to prevent it, a senior Hamas leader said after holding talks with Egyptian officials.

“Tomorrow (Sunday) is going to be the last day for the border to be open like this,” Gaza’s Hamas strongman, Mahmoud Zahar, told the Arab satellite TV station Al-Jazeera, after returning to Gaza.

Zahar said Hamas would not prevent a closure of the border. However, he said in exchange Egypt agreed to allow thousands of Palestinians currently stuck in Egypt to travel to third countries and would coordinate with Hamas on border issues.

How kind of the Hamas terrorists to allow Egypt to protect its national sovereignty.

Now if only we could convince our good neighbor to the south to do the same.
