Islamic jihadists bomb Egypt-Gaza border base

Will Morsi act? Does he care to? “Islamic Terrorists Bomb Egyptian-Gaza Border Base,” by Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu for Israel National News, November 25:

Islamic terrorists destroyed part of an Egyptian security building at Rafiah Saturday night, challenging Cairo’s control over the Sinai after the ceasefire with Israel. No one was injured in the explosion at the base, under construction n the Egyptians side of Rafiah, the smuggling capital of Gaza.

The attack came 48 hours after Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi granted himself extensive new powers, which were challenged by Cairo’s judiciary.

A separate explosion injured three people further south in the Sinai, where Egypt is building a facility to help it protect the pipeline that ships natural gas to Israel and Jordan. Terrorists have bombed the pipeline more than a dozen times the past two years in an effort to scuttle the agreement to sell gas to Israel.

Saturdays night’s bombing underlined Egypt’s difficulty in re-asserting control over the Sinai, where Hamas terrorists from Gaza, along with Bedouin allies and Al Qaeda-linked terrorist cells, have carved out regions of authority. They have staged increasingly frequent terrorist attacks on Israel. Several Israelis have been killed in the attacks….

    From the article –

    “A separate explosion injured three people further south in the Sinai, where Egypt is building a facility to help it protect **the pipeline that ships natural gas to Israel and Jordan.** {my emphasis – dda}.

    ” Terrorists have bombed the pipeline more than a dozen times the past two years in an effort to scuttle the agreement to sell gas to Israel.

    “Saturdays night’s bombing underlined Egypt’s difficulty in re-asserting control over the Sinai, where Hamas terrorists from Gaza, along with Bedouin [Muslim – dda] allies and Al Qaeda-linked terrorist cells, have carved out regions of authority. They have staged increasingly frequent terrorist attacks on Israel. Several Israelis have been killed in the attacks….”.

    Now just think, if western nations had NOT forced Israel – who gained the Sinai in defensive war in 1973, in the course of defending herself against an intended-to-be-genocidal assault launched against her on all fronts by all her Muslim neighbours – to give said Sinai back to Islamic Egypt, *none* of this would be happening.

    I am sure that if Israel had kept the Sinai, Israel would be well and truly in command of the Sinai – and, incidentally, also in command of, and therefore protecting, to the ultimate benefit of all kuffar, the east bank of the Suez Canal – and Egypt and Jordan, so long as they behaved, and even so long as they did not too egregiously misbehave, would receive, at a fair price, oil and gas through efficient Israeli-made and efficiently- Israeli-guarded pipelines.

    And people in southern Israel would not have to endure ceaseless rocket attacks and the threat of murderous jihad raids, whether from Gaza – which Israel would have kept, and controlled, and where Jihad would have been suppressed – *or* from out of the Sinai.

    (Frankly, Israel should have hung onto Sinai and Gaza …from which, in 1973, they should have evicted into Islamic Egypt every single last Mohammedan they found there; most of those in Gaza being originally of Egyptian Arab Muslim extraction, anyway).
