Egypt, Prepare To Be Attacked!

Well not quite but a little too close for comfort regardless. Several Israeli cabinet ministers are demanding the re-acquisition of the Gaza-Egypt border following the discovery of tunnels leading from Egypt into Gaza. The call comes from the Shas Party, an ultra orthodox party which supports an extensive military operation including Israeli troops on Egyptian soil.

Personally I think Israel has controlled the Sinai Peninsula since its acquisition in 1967. It was signed back over to the Egyptians in 1979 but I don't think Egypt has much say in whether or not Israeli troops step foot on it. Plus the territory is filled with checkpoints, Egyptian soldiers, Israeli tourists and a Giant wall to help keep the "animals" contained.
