Egypt flushes out the smugglers
I am sure that many of you saw this story
last week about how Egypt tried to shut down at least some of the Gaza smuggling tunnels by flooding them. But there was a part of the story that was unmentioned in many of the writeups. Egypt didn't use clean water to flush the tunnels. They used raw sewage
Besides the really terrible ew factor, the consequences for the
environment are as equally yuck: the Egyptian army is looking to stall
and stop Gazan smugglers from digging tunnels from the Gaza Strip to
Egypt’s Sinai have found a new and dirty way to flush out smugglers:
they are pouring raw sewage into the underground tunnels. Leaders in
Gaza are trying to figure out how this tactic bodes for future relations
with the Islamic leaders in Egypt.
In the past Egypt flooded the tunnels with gas, something which was
easily pumped out with clean air. The raw sewage appears to be a more
effective, if not offensive, way of stopping the smugglers.
I cannot think of a better use for Muslim fecal matter. Heh.
