You Hear So Much about the Wall Israel Built

But you never hear so much about the wall that Egypt built. San Jose Mercury News - Gunmen breach Gaza-Egypt wall Why is it that Egypt is so intent on blocking access from the Gaza strip? Are the terrorists in Gaza also a problem for Egypt?

Anyway, the "gunmen" in Gaza, took down a large section - about two thirds - of the wall.

But here is an interesting thing. Hamas blocked the wall again - except for 2 gaps - and said people had free movement through the gaps. Could it be that Hamas is using the wall to keep people in, in the same way East Germany used a wall to keep its citizens from escaping to freedom? (I honestly don't know. It just sounds *odd*.)

Of course if the "authorities" in the Gaza strip could stop people (or if they would stop) firing rockets on Israel, perhaps things would go better. But that isn't going to happen anytime soon.
