What if Gazans broke down the border fence with Egypt again?

On Thursday, riots in Egypt spread to the northern Sinai, blocking the road to Rafah. Rafah is right across the border from Gaza (the town is actually divided in half and has been ever since Israel returned the Sinai to Egypt).
Riots have resumed in the city of Suez in Egypt, Al Jazeera reported Thursday. Protesters torched a building and are hurling stones at police forces. According to the report, police are using tear gas to disperse the protest. Meanwhile, protests have resumed in north Sinai and the road leading to Rafah has been blocked.
Will Gaza riot in sympathy for Egypt? For example, might they try to break down the border fence again as happened three years ago (see picture)? Hmmm.

Aren't you glad we listened to Condi Clueless and let the EUBAM (European forces) 'patrol' the Philadelphi corridor (the border between Egypt and Gaza) until they ran away in 2007? Bigger hmmm.
