Egyptians fear 'Palestinian' takeover of Sinai

The thing that Egyptian strongman Hosni Mubarak apparently fears most is that some of his 'Palestinian brothers' from Gaza might actually want to live in his country. Egypt, which has laws that prevent 'foreigners' from purchasing land in Sinai, is investigating reports that 'Palestinians' have purchased hundreds of dunams of land in the Sinai Peninsula from Bedouin tribesmen over the past few weeks. The Bedouin are denying the reports.
Egyptian authorities are investigating claims that many Gazans bought land in Sinai in the past few weeks.

Leaders of several Beduin tribes living in Sinai have sent a message to Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak in which they strongly denied that their families sold land to Palestinians who poured into Egypt after the border was breached on January 23.


In their message, the Beduin leaders said they opposed selling their land to Palestinians or to any other "foreigners."

Mubarak dispatched the governor of northern Sinai, Ahmed Abdel Hamid, to warn the Beduin in Sinai against selling land to Palestinians. Palestinian sources claimed earlier that dozens of families from the Gaza Strip who crossed into Sinai have purchased thousands of dunams of land from Beduin tribes there.

"The Egyptian fear that Palestinian families are planning to settle in Sinai," the sources added.

The semi-official Al-Ahram newspaper in Cairo reported on Thursday that Egyptian security forces have rounded up some 650 Palestinians who were staying in el-Arish. It said the Egyptians were planning to deport them to the Gaza Strip in the coming days.

According to the report, Egyptian authorities have also seized 22 vehicles with Palestinian registration plates.
Does anyone still need proof that Egypt is holding the 'Palestinians' hostage to try to destroy the State of Israel? After all, the 'Palestinians' are supposed to be the Egyptians' 'brothers.'

It turns out the Palestinians have also purchased goods in Sinai with counterfeited currency. As it stands, there's no love lost between the Palestinians and Egyptians both of which have designs on northern Sinai.
