U.S. officials thank Egypt for ‘countering’ tunnels on border with Gaza

August 27, 2009

The International Middle East Media Centre reports:

 “U.S. officials have visited Egypt and the Rafah terminal to discuss “a detailed plan that includes high-tech equipment to uncover tunnels…the U.S. officials said that the congress-supported plan aims at securing the 13.5 border line between Egypt and Gaza. The congress approved allocating 50 million USD to secure the borders between Egypt and Israel”

Today I asked a spokesperson and member of the International Movement to Open the Rafah border IMORB for  a statement on this situation by email. They said:

“Israel and Egypt are maintaining an harsh blockade to the 1,5 millions people in Gaza Strip and the only way for them to get medicine, food, clothes, petrol, and all the basis products is through the tunnels. If US and Egypt close all the tunnels, life in Gaza will be unbearable. Many people will die, particularly the sick people.

As we are heading towards new general elections (presidential and legislative ones) which are expected to come on next January, USA, Israel and the international community want to force Palestinians in Gaza to make the right choice : to vote for the collaborator party and leader. And to insure they will do the right thing, they have to impose an hermetic siege without the help of the Egyptian people and tunnels!

Palestinians will be forced to collaborate with their occupier and to recognize its right to dispossess them. It is not only a shame, it is a crime ! Where is justice ?  Where is the right to freedom ? This is the kind of democracy westerners countries promised to the Palestinians (for the racist zionists : a subhumanity !!)”
