'Head pounding' events in the ME (crazy people that do and say the craziest things )Topics: Middle East News and Perspectives
Egyptian Sandmonkey says his head hurts, and it's easy to see why:
Just as ES quips in his piece, go figure!
First Hamas refuses to let Egypt receive the wounded through the Rafah crossing, saying that Egypt has to open the entire crossing for the million and a half Ghazan, or else they won't get to treat their wounded.. Think about this one for a minute. Let it simmer. When it makes sense to you, let me know.
Then Israeli pundits say that while the air strike is successful, they might need to do a ground incursion, thus proving that Israel is a nation suffering from an Alzheimer epidemic and doesn't remember anything about the last war with Lebanon.
And then the Palestinians in Ghaza break through the Rafah crossing, and kill an egyptian officer in the process, and nobody minds, of course..
And then Nasrallah gets on TV, calls on the egyptian people to revolt by the millions and open up the by-now-open Rafah crossing by force, and on the egyptian military to take a stand against the political leadership and "join the resistance".
And finally, in Iraq, and I wish I was kidding, a suicide bomber blew himself up in the middle of a Pro-Palestinian demonstration.
