Egypt Looks at Gaza
The Big Pharaoh is back blogging and looks at Egypt's new neighbor. "It seems that we’re going to have new neighbours pretty soon. Hamas is currently on its way to consolidate its power over the Gaza strip. Egypt, at least the government, is watching this with tremendous concern. My advice to the Egyptian government is to deploy thousands upon thousands of army troops on the Gaza borders and beneath. The borders there are pretty small and could be controlled. This will definitely have to be in agreement with Israel."
One of the Palestinians quoted in the press said "all the Red Lines have been crossed." Diplomats, of course, are the prime adherents of "Red Lines". They have all these imaginary boundaries drawn all over the place and are surprised when these are crossed by a bullet. In extremis the only laws on the battlefield are the laws of physics. Hamas knows that already. The question is whether the people we think of as "Adults" know it too.
