Read this latest story about Egypt, Gaza, Israel, and the U.S.

cleverly camouflaged in these few short paragraphs are not-so-subtle suggestions of truly staggering arrogance and complicity in war crimes on the part of two countries... see if you can tell which ones...
Egypt began trying to control the masses of Palestinians flooding in from the Gaza Strip Thursday, stopping some from moving deeper into Egypt. But authorities did not attempt to reseal the breached border with the Palestinian territory.

Israeli Deputy Defense Minister Matan Vilnai said Israel wants to relinquish all responsibility for Gaza, including the supply of electricity and water, now that Gaza's southern border with Egypt has been opened.

Egypt immediately rejected the idea.

On the Egyptian side of the border, helmeted riot police with dogs used batons to beat the hoods of Egyptian cars and trucks offering rides to Palestinians seeking to buy goods in towns out of walking range.

Dozens of Egyptian guards pushed their way through the crowds but did nothing to halt the thousands of Palestinians moving over the wreckage of a metal wall brought down when Palestinian gunmen blasted it with explosives a day earlier.

U.S. and Arab officials said Wednesday that Egypt had assured the United States it would soon reseal the border.

oh, man... some things just render me at a loss for words... israel wants to wash its hands of gaza, basically saying the gaza people can go starve in the dark, and the u.s. is seeking assurances from egypt that it will reseal the gaza-egypt border to make goddam sure it happens...
