Hamas Enters Egypt


Stratfor, the news analysis service, is now reporting the following, which it states is from its source in Hamas but which it has not confirmed.  It is consistent with other reports that the Egyptian police have melted away:

            The Egyptian police are no longer patrolling the Rafah border crossing into Gaza. Hamas armed men are entering into Egypt and are closely collaborating with the MB [Muslim Brotherhood]. The MB has fully engaged itself in the demonstrations, and they are unsatisfied with the dismissal of the Cabinet. They are insisting on a new Cabinet that does not include members of the ruling National Democratic Party.
