When I was a kid, we used to flood gopher holes for the same effect.

It worked.

Looks like the goofs from Hamas believed Egypt would act against its own national interest.
Such things rarely happen in the real world.

Mursi is setting a marvelous example in pragmatism and political prostitution.
He uses religion to fool simple voters, lies to the opposition, false-promises the people, kills protesters, takes from the poor to give the rich…
He’s so disgusting I can’t believe it!

There is no blockade on Gaza!!!!
Israel transfers 230 Truck loads a day with all the good they need.
Egypt and Gaza have an open border in the Rafah crossing.
Why is Reuters always demonizing Israel. They remind me on the WWII German press if not worst.

Egypt is destroying the tunnels because it can’t collect taxes on smuggled goods and it in dire need of cash these days!!
