I haven't updated in a week or so because I've been completely caught up in the Olympic fervour (woo), meaning I have a lot to catch up on. First however, I'm going to re-post this article that comments on the recent attack on the Egyptian border station of Rafah, which left at least 15 Egyptian border guards dead. It didn't take long for the blame game to start, and although initial reports from both the Israeli and the Egyptian side placed the blame on Islamists, the MB and Salafis in Egypt have struck back pointing the finger of blame on Mossad. The reason why? Of course the Islamists never advocate violence and are overall peaceful and believe in a peaceful co-existence. (And for those who have followed the news in Egypt in the past few weeks, all you have to do is ask why this rhetoric was not raised when Christians were being persecuted in Dahshur).
From the Egypt Independent, please read on.
