But Israel wants guarantees that Egypt will actively stop the flow of arms into Gaza from Sinai, and that seems a tall order. Egypt has been unable to control Sinai and would not want to be seen in the role of Israeli enforcer. Egypt is hoping Hamas will restrain itself on missile imports, but it is far from clear that Hamas wants to or can, given the range of forces in Gaza vying for power, including the Iranian-backed Islamic Jihad. nyt
It is likely time to make the “tunnels” a bit longer. The fact is that the Egyptians cannot, or will not, control the arms flow from the Sinai. Israel can and should take this bit of desert as a cordon sanitaire.
The assholes in Gaza would have to pound sand in that event.
This would be a good thing.
