Bullets To Gaza
By Micah Halpern

Thursday November 17, 2005

I've Been Thinking:

The Palestinian Authority is facing a shortage - of bullets.
It seems that Palestinian police are complaining that they are being out gunned by Hamas - who have no shortage of ammunition of any kind.
But the crisis has been solved.

Half a million bullets are on their way to shore up the Palestinian arsenal.
Courtesy of the Egyptians.

The bullets will probably arrive today. The Egyptians already have a presence in Gaza so it will be easy to supervise the transaction from there. According to the agreement, the Egyptians will dispense the ammunition, making certain that it goes to the Palestinian police and the police only. They will also supervise the storage of the bullets.

What does Israel have to say about all this? They have given their OK, stipulating that the bullets go to PA police only.
The United States actually, originally, wanted Israel to supply the PA bullets, but that was taking it a bit too far.
Crisis averted, we hope.
