    As for Gaza, Egypt is barred by its peace treaty with Israel from opening the Philadelphi route. If they do, Israel can easily slice into Gaza and occupy a new "border" noprtheast of Rafah, isolating Gaza from the Egypt border - and now too wide to tunnel under. You must be nuts to think Israel is just going to sit and do nothing while its right to "secure and recognized borders are violated (UNSC242). You think EU will intervene after its ongoing Libya fiasco? Or Egypt, which has no interest in getting nuked?
