Who does an activist have to [bleep] to get into Gaza? [You sure about "into"? Not "the hell out of"?]
A number of French activists left Cairo International Airport to other world capitals after Egyptian authorities denied on Thursday their entry to Gaza through the Rafah crossing.
The activists protested the authorities’ decision not to allow them entrance by lying on the floor in the airport imitating dead bodies while draping Palestinian flags on their bodies.
Imitating dead bodies? Teases.
A source at the Cairo airport said the French consul to Cairo apologized for the lack of cooperation by activists with the airport authorities.
How much of an a-hole are you if your consul has to apologize to Egyptian authorities for your behavior? They shoot Sudanese undocumented workers seeking refuge in Israel in the back over there.
Egyptian security services have started to collect information about thousands of Hamas members who were granted Egyptian citizenship during the rule of ousted president Mohamed Mursi, according to Egyptian media.
Egypt’s Day Seven news website reported that Egyptian authorities plan revoke the citizenship of 13,757 Hamas members for being “affiliated to an offshoot of the terrorist group the Muslim Brotherhood.”
Egyptian authorities are investigating whether Hamas members have been involved in what they describe as “terrorist attacks,” adding that the prime minister has the right to revoke the citizenship of Hamas members without a court ruling if it is deemed that they endanger public security.
On Tuesday, an Egyptian court banned the activities of Hamas and ordered its assets seized.
Egypt won’t let people into Gaza or out of Gaza. That sounds like a siege to me. Good for them.
