rafah and the zionists
I don't think that the solution is to close the border,because this is what the Zionists wanted to achieve! This bloody attack is a provocation to Morsy ,a kind of test, to find out how weak he is. The solution is to move 50.000 troops ,missiles and tanks to Sinai and leave open Rafah! But surely the traitor Tantawi will oppose this ideal ,because PANETTA [he was here in the last weak] and him have already a plan ,of course with the Zionists together, how they are going to create insecurity in the country to FINISH MORSI!
