Egypt to Open Rafiah Crossing

  25. Sam Bromley says:

    Hamas has sent over 1,705 rockets with the intent of murdering children by the 1,000s. They are just poor shots. Israel protects itself with precision firing of missles at those firing these rockets making sure they hit their target and not kill civilians! FACT! The only problem is, these Hamas cowards strap children onto their backs and place their rockets in the homes of children for the exact purpose for liberals to blame Israel for killing babies! FACT! Israel is saving children by wiping Hamas off the face of the earth!!!!!!!!!!!

  26. Agreed. Then Egypt can take care if them.

  27. They need need to evacuate the brainwashed children too

  28. Ruth Brackin says:

    Sorry-but Gaza belongs to Israel. Not Egypt!

  29. they will go to israel for medical care

  30. Bad Move !! Some people never learn.

  31. So Egypt will let more radicals into their country to continue the unrest.

  32. Karen Bryant says:

    I hope they are only opening it for those people to leave and not letting anyone in or weapons.

  33. True Bruce give Gaza to Egypt
