Egypt cutting off Hamas

Egypt has cut off support for Hamas out of anger with the terror organization's defamation campaign against it.
In Monday's edition, independent paper al-Mesryoon, which is affiliated with the Egyptian opposition, reported that Cairo has decided to reject any requests by Hamas officials for entry visas to Egypt in the near future, and to freeze all channels of diplomatic and security communications with the movement.

According to a senior official, the decision was made as part of a series of steps to respond to what the Egyptians called "Hamas' media defamation campaign against Egypt".

The Egyptians say the public campaign is being led by the organization's most senior and well-known figures: Politburo chief Khaled Mashaal and member of the political bureau Mohammed Nazzal in Damascus, and Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh and senior figure Mahmoud al-Zahar in the Gaza Strip.

According to the sources, the severing of ties is not related to the failure of Egyptian-mediated talks to reconcile between Hamas and Fatah, but comes as a response to "the organizated media campaign that Hamas officials are waging against Egyptian figures, by defaming them in Arab satellite television stations and in Arab media."

They can't get along with each other. How on earth do people expect them to live in peace with the dhimmi Jews?

Go figure.
