Looks like things will get real interesting, real fast. Maybe it will be a good thing for everyone. It will end both the recurring flotilla crises and the blockade complaints. If everything can come and go via Rafah, then Gaza can no longer complain that it lacks goods or anything it needs to succeed. “The Occupation” would no longer be an issue in terms of their day to day living standards. Of course, we do hope our partners in peace, the Egyptians, monitor their borders carefully to ensure no military contraband gets across. Tunnels can still be used for smuggling weapons and drugs.
