Dashing Palestinian Hopes

Just days after Egypt opened the Rafah border crossing into Egypt, the Age headline screams out: Palestinian hopes dashed at the border.

Why are their hopes "dashed"?

Dig deep enough into the article and it tells you.

"The Palestinian news agency Maan quoted an Egyptian security official as saying that Hamas was sending in ineligible people, including some involved in illegal smuggling through tunnels beneath Gaza's southern borders with the Sinai Peninsula."


Hamas would allow that?

The Egyptians don't want the Palestinians any more than the Jordanians did when they were kicked out. They are nothing but trouble.
