Galloways goons riot, Egyptian cop killed by 'Palestinians'

At the El Arish border crossing between Egypt and Gaza, a 'Palestinian' sniper shot and killed an Egyptian police officer and 'internationals' from George Galloway's Viva Palestina organization brawled with Egyptian police after Egypt refused to let through part of a 'relief' convoy that it said must enter Gaza through an Israeli crossing point.
The scuffles at the port broke out late Tuesday at al-Arish port building when authorities told the organizers that out of the nearly 200 vehicles, some 59 can't enter Gaza through Egypt, but must go through Israeli terminals.

A security official said the vehicles in question are carrying pickup trucks, sedans, generators and other equipment, which are not allowed to pass through the Egyptian crossing at Rafah and had to go via Israel. Only medical aid and passengers are allowed through, the official said.

British MP George Galloway told Sky News television that the activists were negotiating with authorities and refusing to leave behind their vehicles.

"We refused this because it's a breach of the agreement which we reached," he said. "It is completely unconscionable."

Foreign Ministry spokesman Hossam Zaki said the rules were clear from the start, and accused the activists of coordinating with Hamas to create problems. He said the private automobiles are not considered humanitarian goods, and must enter from Israel.

"We didn't mislead anyone. They have their interests ... and they want to make up problems and clash with Egypt," he told The Associated Press.

"We are activists. We condemn the Israeli siege to start with. We will only enter through an Egyptian-Palestinian crossing," said Wael al-Sakka, a Jordanian activist.
I guess the 'poor' Gazans have money to pay for private automobiles - or at least for the gas that fuels them, which they can get in Gaza.

On Wednesday, the border guards fought with the 'Palestinians' who had been called upon to riot by Hamas.
One official said Wednesday that the border guard was shot dead by a Palestinian sniper while Gazan youths hurled stones across the border at the Egyptian security forces.

Egyptian forces opened fire on Palestinians who were pelting them with rocks from the other side of the border over frustration that an aid convoy had been delayed.
But just give them a state and they'll stop behaving this way.... Oops. We did give them a state in Gaza and they continue to behave this way.

Maybe if all these 'internationals' would stop showering the 'Palestinians' with gifts, they'd build an economy in Gaza, get jobs and start working for a living.

The Egyptians will be even less appreciative of the Palestinians and have one more reason to finish the wall now that an Egyptian border guard was killed. And they resent the Galloway moonbats running around telling them what to do in their own country.
