Land of Pharohs, Pyramids and Pres for Life Hosni Mubarrak, Egypt is also good at pretending. Using his best Relax y'all this is part of the show tone Egypts Foreign Ministry Spokescat H'Ssam Zaki says getting an estimated 750K ex colonists and their rowdy children gate crashing sovereign borders is all part of the plan.
"We are not opening the Rafah crossing just for everybody to cross - we're
opening it because it's a very dire humanitarian situation The current situation
is only an exception and for temporary reasons. The border will go back to
"These provocations cause us concern and our Palestinian brothers should note
that the Egyptian decision to host them and ease their suffering should not

Totally jazzed up with victory, HAMAS's Ahmed Youssef giddily dreamed of trying this Border busting tactic with Little Satan
"The next time there is a crisis in the Gaza Strip, Israel will have to face
half a million Palestinians who will march toward Erez."
Cairo's regime would most likely not survive a battle with civilians or even risk it because of the catastrophic impact it would have on Pres for Life Hosni 's street creds on the Arab street.
Cutting deals with HAMAS and their new bases in Sinai may be a non starter - everywhere it's been tried - Pakistan, Lebanon, Palestine - it's always like the Kiss of Death. Hosni's one chance may actually be cutting a deal with Little Satan.
Violence could possibly be managed in the press with a state controlled media and bribes to neighboring turf. It would also mean starring the HAMAS as the villan in Arab press and trying to evacuate civilians from Gaza..
The interesting point no one has yet brought up is, with all this chaos and border deconstruction - what might be sneaking in to the Gaza Strip?
