The Hatred of Gaza is Infectuous - Who Really Wants That?

Reader comment on item: Give Gaza to Egypt
in response to reader comment: How will that stop the rockets?

It has taken some time to digest and analyze some of comments that came later saying that Egypt should assume responsibility for Gaza. At the outset, let this opinion share that the idea is untenable at the very minimum, and disastrous in any form of execution.

Let us start with the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood, is this not the starter organization that spun off the Hamas and other anti-Israel organizations? Making Gaza a satellite of Egypt only gives license for the Brotherhood to move closer to their sworn blood enemy Israel and it would serve to cement their alliance with Hamas and Kassams Incorporated. They will not stop until they think thay have won over Israel.

Next, Egypt is already under Holy edict from the Almighty Sovereign of Israel for their former transgressions against Israel, and to engage with Hamas in a politically suicidal alliance with power sharing over Gaza is actually against the peace accord currently in place with Israel. As noted elsewhere in the dialogue of others, Egypt cannot afford to take this course.

All of this for one very powerful reason (though one of many), that the true intent of virtually all other Muslim ideological positions is the diminishment and final elimination of Israel as a separate Jewish entity in the land. Exhibit 1 is the determination of the Waqf to erase and eliminate any historic references of any Jewish heritage on the Temple Mount. It is the model of belief that most fundamental Islamic believers will say is necessary to underscore the importance of Islam to the Middle East to eliminate Israel.

Here is one of the things the Eternal Sovereign of Israel says through the Prophet Isaiah about Egypt, "And the LORD shall smite Egypt: he shall smite and heal it: and they shall return even to the LORD, and he shall be intreated of them, and shall heal them."

Gaza was forfeited for a season in order to bring judgment to those who continually go against the Word of the L—d. Let Egypt try and assume any political will over Gaza and its judgment can already be seen in the trouble they have for just being a neighbor. Flee Egypt, flee.
