Israel benefits greatly from Sunday's incident. Sixteen Egyptian soldiers were killed in Sinai. Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood (MB) blamed Mossad. More below on separating rhetoric from policy.
"Yesterday, a group of criminals and terrorists attacked an Egyptian security checkpoint in Rafah, killing nearly twenty of our brothers, our sons, and stole one car and one truck, and tried to crash their way into Israel."
"Hamas condemns this ugly crime that killed a number of Egyptian soldiers and extends its deep condolences to the families of the victims and to the leadership and the people of Egypt."
"Armed attackers" stole an armored personnel carrier. They "killed around 15 Egyptian policemen." Israeli air strikes destroyed their APC. IDF officials claimed it avoided a "large-scale terror attack."
"IDF forces, under the command of Maj. Gen. Tal Russo, and on the orders of Chief of Staff Benny Gantz, and with the assistance of the Shin Bet, showed alertness, sharpness and purposefulness, and prevented a terror attack that could have caused many casualties.""The way the attackers operated once again raises the necessity of resolute Egyptian action to impose security and prevent terror in Sinai."
"There are states behind what the terrorists are doing in Sinai. It is far beyond Sinai groups' level."
"Unknown armed men opened fire on a checkpoint on the main road between Al-Arish and Rafah."
Goebbels said "(i)f you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.""(T)ruth is the mortal enemy of the lie," he added, "and thus by extension, (it's) the greatest enemy of the State."
Humanity "has been victimized by an international conspiracy of ongoing criminal activity carried out by the nuclear weapons states under the doctrine known as 'nuclear deterrence,' which is really a euphemism for 'nuclear terrorism.' "
and "planet earth will become a radioactive wasteland."
