Egypt abandons flees Gaza

Middle East Newsline is reporting that Egypt has quietly 'withdrawn' its forces from Gaza in recognition of its lack of influence over the Hamas 'government.' It sounds to me that it is more out of fear for their lives. The Egyptians had sent a 100-member delegation to Gaza in mid-2006 to 'advise' the Hamas government. But that is no more:
Israeli sources said the 100-member Egyptian military advisory delegation that arrived in the Gaza Strip in mid-2006 has been recalled. They said two generals have remained, but spend most of their time in Israel to ensure their safety from Palestinian attacks.

"The Egyptians have lost influence with the Hamas government and found that they were under constant threat," an Israeli source said. "Under such conditions, it was better to pull out the advisers."
But just give the 'Palestinians' a state reichlet.
