He can't have it both ways. The bigger issue isn't Gaza, but Sinai - Mubarak is violating the Egypt-Israel peace agreement (that gives him access to US arms and aid) by flooding the demilitarized Sinai with weapons en route to Hamas. They all come from Egyptian Army weapons depots in Port Said. No doubt, thousands more tons of illegal arms have been moved by Egypt into Sinai itself. If this conduct doesn't cease, promptly, you can bet that no Israeli will object to a US arms-aid-parts cut-off to Egypt. The US has already frozen new arms sales to Egypt because of Egypt stationing its forces as if preparing to use them against Israel, as well as continued purchasing of North Korean SCUD missiles. Not part of the peace deal. The idiot Reagan-Bush administration (read: James Baker) gave Egypt far more arms (cruise missiles, F-16s, an M-1 tank factory, a blue water Navy of ex-US missile frigates) than its legitimate defense needed. Mubarek proves daily that its time to undo this blunder.
