The Cape Times has a SAPA-AP article on the wall Egypt is building on the border with Gaza, employing a headline that might make you forget that there is a reason why Egypt is building a wall along their border with Gaza: “The wall of steel that will keep the people of Gaza penned in”.
The article is pretty neutral, but I can’t help wonder why the writer doesn’t explicitly mention that the 400 tunnels between Gaza and Egypt are used to smuggle in weapons.
To be honest, I don’t know why Egypt doesn’t want hundreds of Palestinians to flood into Egypt. Why don't they open their borders and consider a single state solution with Egypt and Gaza?
Arab protestors have responded with the ultimate insult:
|On Sunday, demonstrators marched outside Egyptian embassies in Jordan and Lebanon, holding posters showing Egypt's president with Israel's Star of David on his forehead.|
