Egypt had control of Gaza twice (1948-1956, 1957-1967). It never was able to hold it. Israel captured it without fight. Israel left Gaza under pressure and when Sharon was PM. Like in Lebanon, everybody was on the run. Because of its situation. Gaza was not free. It was left to the merci of Israel, PA of Abbas/Dahlan, and the Egyptians. The three partis had common goal and were in perfect cooperation to prohibit Hamas from coming to the scene. Now Israel being under unprecedented pressure and itself beseiged world public opinion, might be obliged to let Gasa free. That would be an immense gain for Palestinians. For the first time, Palestinians woulod have a free land of their own. They do not need Egypt which had for long humiliated and blackmailed them. With maritime and air links to the world, Gaza could become the flagship of freedom for Palestinians. PA of Abbas would face popular unrest in the West Bank and forced to flee. People of the world would support Gaza. It is in the interest of real and durable peace that at last Israelis face reality and accept that the Palesinian people be free. The last colonialism in the world would have been no more. Current Israeli leadership is not qualified to take historic stand. It is still under the mentality of arrogance and illusion of invincibility. Free Gaza is in the strategic interest of Egypt .
