Egypt doesn't want Gaza

Reader comment on item: Give Gaza to Egypt

Submitted by bernardZ (Australia), Jan 31, 2008 at 09:52

It was on the table early when Israel gave them the Sinai. Egypt refused.

I don't blame them except for a military platform to attack Israel, the Gaza has little value. It has no natural resources except maybe fishing, a lousy economy and a hot bed of radicalism. Under Egyptian control In time Israel would hold Egypt responsible for terrorism coming out of Gaza like before 1967.
