"What arrogance! Surely this official knows that Egypt also has a border with Gaza so why has that Arab nation blocked it`s border as well?" You Israelis with your double speak. You know very well if Egypt opened its borders against Israeli wishes that Israel would begin whining about how they are aiding the enemy...so dont try that hasbara. They are trying to abide by the peace agreement. Thats just hilarious. You know very well Egypt cant even change the amount of troops at the border without Israel having a say about it.
