Peace In Our Time Update from Gaza. Good thing Condoleeza Rice made the Israelis turn over control of this crossing to the Palestinians, eh? From the BBC, with thanks to Mackie:
Several Palestinian militants who either fled or were expelled by Israel have returned to Gaza via the recently re-opened Rafah border crossing.
The entry of as many as 15 members of Hamas, including one of its founders, has angered Israel.
Israeli Defence Minister Shaul Mofaz has warned his government will close two crossings it controls if militants continue to enter via Rafah….
The Hamas members allowed to return via Rafah include one of the group’s founders, Ahmed al-Malah, and Fadel Zahhar, a brother of Hamas leader in Gaza, Mahmoud Zahhar.
Fadel Zahhar returned to Gaza after 14 years in exile, having been expelled to Lebanon by Israel in 1991.
Palestinian officials insist that anyone with a Palestinian identity card can enter Gaza from Rafah.
