Gaza mortar shells target Israeli forces searching for Hamas tunnels; Israel responds with airstrike, tank fire and declares border area a closed military zone; Hamas evacuates two schools as a precautionary measure.21:44 04.05.16 | 4 comments
Egypt and Jordan will be inevitably compelled to take such measure, because they won't be able to tolerate existential threat of adjoining Muslim Bros (Hamas) or irredentist (Fatah) regime, respectively. Jordan and Egypt are relatively responsible states that formally agreed to coexistence with IL; whereas Pal-Arabs were locked up for decades in refugee camps and given pseudo-nat'l identity, just to spearhead the avowed destruction of IL - in essence an 'anti-nation' unable to seek any other common cause. Jordan was part of original Palestine Mandate, separated by the Brits in 1922 to create original Pal-Arab state, and is today one of best-run Arab states. Peace treaty with Egypt provides IL with security by way of a wide buffer zone in demilitarized Sinai. Any further misguided "Palestinism" on the narrow sliver of Western Palestine will bring nothing but more wars, bloodshed and misery - certainly not hoped-for peace!
