I guess it's time for Egypt to burden itself with Jerusalem.

Egypt has threatened Israel, telling them to stop its incursion in the West Bank, Rafah in particular or it will jeopardize the peace treaty between the two of them.

Israel's right to freely move about the waterways controlled by Egypt in swap for the Sinai Peninsula was the very basis of this treaty. Remembering after the 1967 war Israel had won all the land of the Sinai Peninsula. Today what angered Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, President of Egypt, was Israel taking control of the southern border of the Gaza Strip on both sides, which also means control of the southern Crossing.

On one side Hamas was in control, on the other was Egypt, which left the possibility of Hamas being able to smuggle in ammunition and money through the crossing. Israel taking control has also lessen the chance of Hamas leader Sinwar and possibly other Hamas terrorists from being able to escape through this route.

Israel at first, closing and taking control of the southern border and the crossing was temporary, and Israel has opened it back up for humanitarian aid to come through.

Now the problem; Egypt thwarting, sabotaging any aid coming through and blaming the humanitarian aid shortage on Israel, turning this situation into a political move to further pressure Israel to stop the war in Gaza Strip. So now you see the problem where we can have another country aiding and abetting Hamas by making it harder on Israel as it fights for its freedom, but yet and again more pressure by political influence.

Zechariah 12:3 And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.


Let's add another country to the list of those who burden themselves.

So very interesting how the situation is escalating..and, the stiff-necked Egyptians are now playing hardball and joining in the action. Biden doesn't want Israel to go into Rafah as it would expose more treachery of the coalition of evil to be's not humanitarian but only for political gains and as Biden needs the Arab vote for the election...looks like a chess game. I play chess fairly well, but, not an expert; it's a challenging game to say the least. This scene reminds me of ancient Egypt in the scriptures and the stiff-necked pharaoh who wouldn't allow the Jews to leave Egypt but the Jews did prevail! Some country players of yore don't a tiger doesn't change his stripes.
