Cairo - The government of Egypt is taking a spectacularly hard line
against international solidarity efforts in support of civilians in Gaza
on the one-year anniversary of the Israeli invasion,
blocking peace marchers from the U.S., Canada, and Europe
from even approaching the Egyptian border with Gaza and blocking
an aid convoy that has the support of the Turkish government from
entering Egypt at Nuweiba.
And an added note:
Meanwhile, there is largely a U.S. press blackout of these striking developments.
A search of the New York Times and the Washington Post
only turns up a tiny AP story on the websites of the Times and the Post.
