Egypt Arrests Hamas Helpers
By Micah Halpern
Thursday September 12, 2019
I've Been Thinking:
Egypt sentenced 11 Muslim Brotherhood members to life imprisonment for helping Hamas.
There are two essential points here.
First, Egypt has made the Muslim Brotherhood illegal. In Egypt, Hamas is also an illegal organization. Hamas, the group that controls Gaza, is viewed as a terror organization by Egypt.
Second, Hamas is at war with Israel, with the United States and with Egypt. Egypt often tries to reach out to Hamas – to negotiate, to run interference, to deliver messages from Israel and the US, but that does not mean that they are allies. Egypt and Hamas are enemies – enemies who share a border and still talk with one another. But enemies none the less.
