Reader comment on item: Give Gaza to Egypt

Submitted by Rick (United States), Jan 29, 2008 at 17:23

Because Egypt wants nothing to do with these former Egyptians. They controlled them for 20 years so they know exactly what they getting and want no part of it.. Besides, with Hamas a junior partner of the Moslem Brotherhood, the only party in Egypt that can threaten Mubarak's intended rule of his son, he wants even less to do with Gazans.

The day Israel hinted that it is considering ending all relatioships with Gaza- i.e. not supplying electricity and water as well as "humanitarian" aid, Egypt announced it would rebuild the wall and things would return to "normal"- that means Israel shoulders the whole load, rockets keep flying into Israel, Israel keeps bumbing off Hamas functionaries and Egypt can sit back and jsut make money on smuggling.

What is amazing is that Gaza is the nearest thing to Miami Arabs have, but with nutcases in charge, they only see beaches as places to bring weapon contraband ashore. Someone should explain that hotels bring tourists and tourists would make good hostages. That would impress these islamic nincompoops.
