    It seems as though everyone has an opinion on what the Egyptians should do with their country and government. Iran wants the Muslim Brotherhood restored to power; Russia is worried about civil war; most of the West wants new elections and an end to military rule. The US is currently debating on whether to call the coup a coup at all, as that designation would force a suspension of American aid to the Egyptian military. The Obama administration demanded the restoration of “a democratically elected civilian government” rather than “the democratically elected civilian government,” a nuance that was not lost...
  • Egypt court rules Hamas armed wing 'terror group'

    An Egyptian court on Saturday banned the armed wing of Palestinian Islamist movement Hamas, the Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades, declaring it a "terrorist" group, a judiciary official said. Since Egypt's military ousted Islamist president Mohamed Morsi in 2013, the authorities have accused Hamas, which controls the Gaza Strip, of aiding jihadists who have increased their attacks on security forces in the Sinai Peninsula. Saturday's court verdict followed a complaint from a lawyer accusing the Hamas armed wing of direct involvement in "terrorist operations" in the Sinai, a court official said. The lawyer also accused the movement of using tunnels under the...

    Gazans are being evicted from their homes, a curfew has been imposed, and a crossing that enables Gazans to leave has been closed. Yet the world is silent. Strange, is it not? Hundreds of residents along one of Gazas borders have suddenly been ordered to evacuate, on just two days notice. Their homes are to be demolished. There is no talk of compensation. Why isnt the United Nations Security Council denouncing this outrage? Because it is the Egyptian government, and not Israels, that is doing the evicting. See the New York Times, October 28 edition. The Egyptians have decided they...

    Egyptians protest after homes demolished to create buffer zone; Hamas official says Egyptian move could "solidify the blockade." Egyptian soldiers keep guard in Sinai Photo: REUTERSThe Hamas government said Sunday it was "surprised" to hear that Egypt is planning to create a buffer zone along the border with the Gaza Strip. Ehab Ghissin, spokesman for the Hamas government, said that there should be no buffer zones "between brothers and friendly countries." Ghissin expressed hope that the Egyptian move would not "solidify the blockade" and increase the suffering of the people in the Gaza Strip. He called for establishing a free...

    BEIT LAHIYA, Gaza Strip - Israeli forces on Thursday took over the remains of three abandoned Jewish settlements in the northern Gaza Strip and entered a nearby Palestinian town, creating a temporary buffer zone to prevent Palestinian militants from firing rockets at Israel. The army last week launched its largest operation in the coastal area since it withdrew from the territory a year ago. The operation, which followed the capturing of an Israeli soldier, was expanded overnight after militants from the ruling Hamas group fired two homemade rockets at the southern Israeli city of Ashkelon, which used to be out...

State representatives Mike Merrifield and Buffie McFadyen introduced the measure, Sunday. They said they were outraged over a protest outside of a Fort Carson soldier's funeral, earlier this month.
  • The Left's latest panacea - trusteeship for Palestine

    The new panacea prescribed by the Israeli Left for calming the conflict with the Palestinians is an international trusteeship, which means transferring governmental responsibility in Judea, Samaria and Gaza to a US-led alliance and introducing American forces to keep the peace. Figures such as former Meretz head Yossi Sarid and former Barak-era foreign minister Shlomo Ben-Ami have finally understood that the conflict cannot be resolved in the near future. Thus, in their despair, they have turned to the Americans to settle the dispute between the natives. Some European states are similarly showing interest in participating in such an international force...
