Some Hamas Freedom Fighters had blown several holes in the wall at Rafah and Egyptian officials allowed Palestinian people from Gaza to move back and forth across the border to get food and medicines and fuel from a nearby Egyptian town.
Can you imagine how these beleaguered people must have felt when they experienced a touch of freedom for the first time in decades, when they could do what most people in the world take for granted: move around without restriction, go to another town, even another country and shop? It must have been mind-blowing, like a fantastic dream!
Israel, the immoral jailer, predictably, is complaining. Egypt is justifying its humanitarian position. How long the crossing remains open is another question.
Freedom is still a fantasy for some people!
But it shouldn't be.
