Egypt Cuts off Hamas, Postponing Next Gaza War

The Egyptian regime doesn't want a war or even a high level of conflict at this time.

For the time being, however, the situation looks better.

Note: The phrase “Communism in one country” meant that having Communism in one country–the Soviet Union–was enough for Communists and they would not try to spread revolution further. Communists were supposed to reject this idea. The meaning here is that Hamas would be happy enough to run the Gaza Strip that it wouldn’t be aggressive or subversive to spread its rule further. I’m saying that isn’t true. The same applies for the Muslim Brotherhood generally. How much patience or risk-taking they employ is another matter.
