Shin Bet: Egypt turning blind eye to weapons smuggling into Gaza

Egypt continues to demonstrate that it’s so-called revolution was a farce, and that the new powers will be worse than the old.

None of this matters in the least to the Obama Administration, who is pouring billions into the Muslim Brotherhood-led democariah.

Hillary Clinton has pledged an additional $2 billion to Egypt on top of what the U.S. already donates to the ingrate nation, but that is not enough for Barack Hussein Obama. Without oversight or pre-conditions, Obama wants to forgive $1 billion in Egyptian debt.

Egypt already receives $1.3 billion yearly from the U.S., so add Hillary’s $2 billion and Obama’s $1 billion in debt forgiveness, and the Muslim Brotherhood Egyptian government wins a total of $4.3 billion, making it by far the single largest recipient of U.S. aid.

Ynet- A Shin Bet document paints a bleak picture of Gaza arms smuggling operations and states that the potential threat they pose to Israel has increased since the Egyptian revolution.

According to Shin Bet data, hundreds of rockets capable of hitting targets within a 12-25 mile range, have been smuggled into the Gaza Strip since last year. In addition, some 1,000 mortar shells, dozens of anti-tank missiles and tons of both explosives and explosive-manufacturing materials, have found their way into the hands of Gaza militants in the past year.

During the Mubarak era, Egypt applied substantial efforts to foiling weapon smuggling operations. Among those were the underground steel wall project, meant to physically block smuggling tunnels, which is still under construction; and the deployment of motion sensors along the border.

[...] The Shin Bet said that Iran plays a key role in assisting Islamic Jihad and Hamas – which are eager to acquire weapons that would put them on equal footing vis-à-vis the IDF – in obtaining such weapons.

Gaza’s militant groups are interested in increasing their ability to target the Israeli home front, mostly by utilizing long-range rockets; and Iran, according to the Shin Bet, is directly involved in supplying such weapons.

The Shin Bet draws the main smuggling route starting in Iran, through to Sudan, on to Egypt, then to the Sinai Peninsula and from there into Gaza.
