Reader comment on item: How to Turn Gaza Over to Egypt

Submitted by Donald W. Bales (United States), Feb 7, 2008 at 10:00

Did not Egypt have control of Gaza before it lost the territory to the Israelis in war? Are not the Gazans Arabs? Are not the Egyptians also Arabs? Aren't Arabs supposed to show hospitality to Arabs? Or is that just a Bedouin custom? Let's see-weren't Arabs originally Bedouins?
It would be a good, but bitter, joke if Egypt has to take over Gaza.

The violence against Israel provoked by the mosques and the madrasas in Egypt leading to Egypt's having to take over a difficult task. Does the Egyptian media also provoke violence against Israel? Maybe that would make the U.S. get more bang for all the bucks given to Egypt over these many years.
