"The funeral of the[---]
killed assassinateddead egyptian border officer was attended by 30,000 of his countrymen, who according to al masry alyoum, turned the event into an anti-Hamas rally, shouting anti-Hamas slogans, and rightly stating that his blood is on Hamas' hands."
"Had Israel pulled even half of this shit, I would be the first person calling for some gold old fashioned egyptian-Israeli war, because then they would be clearly our enemies. Whether we like it or not, Hamas is acting like our enemy, and it's time we treat it as one!"Don't forget to read the comments, too. This is a blog where Egyptians and Israelis often engage in friendly back and forth banter in the comments. Of course, there are also some hard-assed idiot Arab nationalist Israel/America haters, too, since those type are all too deeply entrenched in the Middle East, thanks to decades of Arab Nationalism (aka dictatorships) in the region. By and large, the Egyptian commenters seem to be loving and rallying around Mother Egypt way more than with Hamas and the Pals, or even the rest of the Arab world.
There is very little in the way of hostility toward Israel. Indeed, the Israelis and the Egyptians are engaged in very thoughtful and informative dialog. There is plenty of information about the history and politics of this latest round in the long Israeli-Palestinian "conflict" (read this one by an Israeli, for example) and Hamas is clearly seen as the enemy of Eqypt. One of the commenters posted this video showing Hamas using a young boy as a human shield. Little wonder they are regarded as such pariahs:
But wow! 30,000 Egyptians turn out for the funeral of an Egyptian guard murdered by Hamas at the Gazan border. I wonder how many of them feel the same way that the Sandmonkey does?
BTW, I pretty much agree with Tantor. Every country that continues to deliver aid to the Palestinians is engaged in classic enabling behavior and it has to stop.
