Egypt granting free entry to all Palestinians, say Cairo airport officials

This The Times of Israel article claims that Egypt is now "allowing" Palestinians to enter without the "proper" papers !!

This supposedly applies to all Palestinians -- Gaza, West Bank, and Jerusalem.

Apparently there has been a five year ban on "allowing" Palestinians into Egypt.

Why, I don't know.

CAIRO (AP) — Airport officials say Egypt is allowing Palestinians free entry into the country, ending part of a five-year blockade on the Gaza Strip.

The decision means Palestinians can freely leave Gaza. It also applies to Palestinians in the West Bank and Jerusalem.

Gaza is ruled by Hamas, a branch of new Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood. The blockade was imposed after Hamas took control of Gaza by force in 2007. It banned most Palestinians from leaving....

Something about this story seems strange.


Can someone confirm or deny ?

The Egyptians are probably making this gesture because of Ramadan, to show solidarity with the Palestinians. Hamas took control of Gaza after they won the elections, it was supposed to be a sharing of power between them and Fatah but Fatah was thought to be under Israeli control which was shown when Israel supplied them with arms to fight Hamas. Whatever the reason this will give thousands of Palestinians a break from the constant hardship which they have endured for all of their lives.

I smell a war brewing. Once the MB flips Syria It'll be 6 Day War pt. 2. The MB is trying to recreate the Caliphate/Ottoman Empire. Looks like Khamenei might get his wish. No wonder Israel is chomping at the bit to strike Iran. Saudi Arabia is about to end up in MB hands too. With all the weapons that ended up in rebel Libyan hands from "NATO" and whats being supplied to the Syrian rebels via Jezebel (Hillary) Clinton, we can see a dark future for Israel. People used to say the U.S. was Israel's tool. Now it's Islam's tool because we have one running the white house and i see through his taqiyya, he ain't hiding his deception very well.
