More Palestinian oppression!!!


Cairo (AFP) - Egypt's military said Wednesday it has destroyed 1,370 smuggling tunnels under its border with the Gaza Strip, as Cairo's ties remain sour with the Hamas movement that rules the Palestinian enclave.


Oh im sorry its not Israel oppressing Palestine so the world does not care. Wheres the nazis to bash Egypt for its part in oppressing palestine?


The tunnels, under the town of Rafah, are used to transfer food, fuel and consumer products into the densely populated Palestinian enclave.


People will starve !! where is the outrage!

With no source story posted, I can only comment on the opinions.

But maybe this actually benefits Israeli smugglers now ?

More control from the other end.

And WHY would Egypt be so against helping Gaza?

What is the politics involved ?

KFC chicken wings price will skyrocket in Gaza. Last time they said it's already reaching 30 USD for a bucket of 25 cold chicken wings.

Yeah and I'm sure these tunnels were not used for guns or drugs movement..

But I'm not sure why you think nobody will care because it isn't Israel, and these tunnels were under Egyptian land going in and out of their country, which goes UNDER their border, I'm pretty sure any country finding secret tunnels linking their countries without any border control would kick off.

Though the number they destroyed seems quite high

I don't mean to be picky, but what do smuggling tunnels have to do with the temperature of a bucket of chicken? Have they not independently mastered the skill of making fire in the Gaza strip?

Sometimes the pile on with circumstance is a bit silly.

In case everyone didnt notice meanwhile in other threads israel is being blamed because gaza fired rockets at them. In this thread Egypt goes unscathed because israel is to blame for everything. The hypocrisy on this site is absolutely stunning.

That's no joke !!!



Local delivery company is bringing fried chicken from the U.S. fast-food chain through tunnels under the Egypt-Gaza border, and delivering it all over the Gaza Strip. .....

The meals are made at KFC stores in various cities throughout the Sinai Peninsula, because there are no KFC restaurants in Gaza. A KFC restaurant opened last year in the West Bank city of Ramallah.


Palestinian smugglers deliver KFC to Gaza


Obviously this is all connected to rocket attacks that deep cover Mossad agents fire into Israel thus justifying a shut down of the smuggling tunnels.

There must be a consortium of businessmen that want to open KFC franchises in Gaza.

Nothing else makes any sense.
