More shame upon America for continuing to aid in the persecution and the Israeli stranglehold upon the Palestinian people! It is CRIMINAL that NOTHING of promised building goods is being allowed into the country and now, in an effort to help themselves get the basics, money is spent to prevent the Palestinians from bringing in their own necessities. This is to say nothing of necessary medicines and other basic needs.
Egyptian security sources reported Tuesday that American military experts arrived at the Al Arish International Airport and headed, while heavily guarded, to the Rafah border terminal where they met senior Egyptian security officials.
Shame upon shame upon shame upon Mbarak's government for aiding the rogue state of Israel as it starves fellow Arabs with its illegal occupation. Mubarak is a weak "yes man" and traitor to his own race, possibly also because in his greed, he eyes the natural deposits off the shores of Gaza and wishes to keep his hand in that wealth stolen from the Palestinians.
The officials held a meeting with their Egyptian counterparts and presented a detailed plan that includes high-tech equipment to uncover tunnels. The equipment was donated by the United States as the country is sponsoring the installation of high-tech devices to stop the smuggling at the Gaza-Egypt border.
The U.S. officials said that the congress-supported plan aims at securing the 13.5 border line between Egypt and Gaza. The congress approved allocating 50 Million USD to secure the borders between Egypt and Israel.
That is $50 Million AMERICAN TAXPAYERS' money going to continue in this genocidal atrocity. It is so amazing when one considers how well that money could be spent in America on the American people who could put it to very good use on just basic needs. This tells us where Obummer's true allegiance lies, and it is not with America. He salutes the blue and white flag. With the exception of only a few, every goddamn politician in America is bought and paid for by Israel and ready to obey its every wish, even at the cost of their integrity and own voting public.
They visited the border area and saw the tunnels that were uncovered and detonated by Egypt. The number of tunnels uncovered so far exceeded 300.
The officials also observed the ongoing installation of surveillance cameras and monitoring systems along the border, and thanked Egypt for its efforts to counter the tunnels on its border with Gaza.
Israel claims that one of the reasons that “pushed” it to go to war with Gaza us the ongoing smuggling of arms and ammunition.
It is worth mentioning that Egypt installed high-tech surveillance cameras along the border line as an initial step towards installing the new systems.
The equipment can detect underground tunnels, and also detects any underground movement even if it is far away.
THIS IS ANOTHER CASE OF ISRAEL BEING RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS "PROBLEM" AND THEN BLAMING THE VICTIM FOR FINDING A CREATIVE SOLUTION. IF ISRAEL OPENED THE BORDERS TO LEGITIMATE GOODS AND ALLOWED THINGS IN AND OUT OF GAZA, THERE WOULD NOT BE THE NEED TO SMUGGLE!
IF GAZANS WERE ALLOWED FOOD, CLOTHING, GOODS, PETROL, ANIMALS, ETC ETC THERE WOULD BE LESS SUPPORT IN PALESTINE FOR THE TUNNELS AND HENCE LESS SMUGGLING OF ILLEGAL GOODS SUCH AS WEAPONS.
INSTEAD THE CLOSED BORDERS AND TOTAL BAN ON EVERYTHING, ESPECIALLY AFTER THE WANTON DESTRUCTION OF LAST WINTER'S GAZAN MASSACRE, THE NECESSITY OF THE TUNNELS AND SMUGGLING IS ALL THE GREATER!
AMERIKKKA WOULD STILL HAVE ITS $50 AND HAMAS WOULD NOT BE COLLECTING FEES FROM THE SMUGGLERS. ELEMENTARY LOGIC, BUT THERE IS NOT SO MUCH LOGIC AS THERE ARE BLIND HATE AND CUNNING CALLING THE SHOTS HERE ~ ON BOTH SIDES.
