I've Been Thinking:
Yesterday, the Palestinian Prime Minster was blocked from entering Gaza at the Egyptian side of the border.
Eventually, he was permitted to cross and to enter Gaza.
Ismail Haniyeh has been raising money for Hamas and for his government by traveling to places like Sudan, Iran and Qatar.
He had 10's of millions of dollars on him as he approached the border.
He declared that he was carrying money.
The Egyptians told the Israelis.
The Israelis said they would not let him in with the money.
The Egyptians and international border monitors all agreed that crossing the border with the money would be a flagrant violation of all the agreements.
Haniyeh agreed to cross without the money.
A section of the fence was blown open and the Rafah border crossing terminal was turned into a blood zone.
There was an assassination attempt on the life of the Prime Minister.
A Hamas member of the Palestinian Parliament called for an elimination of the entire border with Egypt because it only serves the Zionists.
There is no way that Egypt would get rid of that border.
That border keeps the Palestinians out of Egypt.
