Elder of Ziyon nieuws over grens Gaza-Egypte

 

Egypte houdt de grens met Gaza sinds afgelopen zomer meestal gesloten.

 

Uit het tweede bericht hieronder blijkt dat via de tunnels niet alleen Gaza in werd gesmokkeld, maar vanuit Gaza ook uit Israel geïmporteerde spullen naar Egypte werden gesmokkeld.

 

Zie ook de Gaza update van eind december.

Latest Rafah crossing news that "human rights" organizations ignore

http://elderofziyon.blogspot.nl/2014/01/latest-rafah-crossing-news-that-human.html

The Rafah crossing is open today, after 12 days of being closed.

Even during the days that it is open, very few people have been allowed to cross.

Human rights organizations are almost completely silent.

Here's the Rafah crossing calendar for the past few months:

34 Gazans who flew into Cairo airport were deported from Egypt through Rafah today. No human rights organizations said a word.

 

Two youths who were caught sneaking into Egypt were shot by Egyptian security. No human rights organizations said a word.

 

I am not sure if the Italian delegation that was stuck in Gaza managed to leave today. Here's another photo of one of its members helping the poor Gazans posing for a photo to prove what a humanitarian she is. 

 

 

The "Miles of Smiles" convoy was allowed to enter Gaza today, though.

 

 

Tunnel closings cause Israeli goods to disappear from Egyptian markets!

http://elderofziyon.blogspot.nl/2014/01/tunnel-closings-cause-israeli-goods-to.html

 

The tunnel trade between Egypt and Gaza was two-way.

El Arish market

But Gazans weren't exporting their own goods to Egypt - they were exporting Israeli products. You know, the ones that were allowed in despite the "siege."

Egypt's Al Ahram reports that ever since the Egyptian army has cracked down on smuggling tunnels, Israeli products are no longer on the shelves of towns in the Sinai.

The shortages of Israeli goods is felt mostly in El Arish, Sheikh Zuwaid and Rafah.

The Israeli products that were smuggled from Gaza include clothes, foodstuffs, cosmetics and electrical appliances.

This means, of course, that Gaza had a surplus of Israeli goods, not a shortage!

It also shows that there is a demand for Israeli goods in Egypt, and the reason that more Egyptians aren't legally importing Israeli goods is politics, not profits.

In 2012, an Egyptian TV program claimed that Israeli goods found in the Sinai, such as chocolate, coffee, biscuits and yogurt, were causing infertility. One interviewee claimed that Israeli jeans had secret magnets hidden within them that also cause infertility. Now we can see that the goods shown on TV were all from Gaza smuggling tunnels, not from regular trade between Israel and Egypt.
