Three Terrorists Die From Spicy Hummus And Toxic Gas, But Mostly Toxic Gas

Hamas blames Egypt for deaths of 3 from toxic gas in Gaza tunnel

This is like the man who kills his parents, then pleads for mercy because he is an orphan.

The three died in a smuggling tunnel between the Gaza Strip and the Sinai Peninsula early Saturday, and five were injured, after the group inhaled toxic gas during attempts to repair the tunnel.

The tunnel was destroyed in an Egyptian army border operation in Rafah, and the Palestinians were working to rebuild it when they were exposed to the gas.

Hamas digs the tunnels so they can smuggle weapons and conduct terrorist attacks. But Egypt killing them while they do it is an unacceptable response? Sure, we can discuss the decency of using toxic gas. I guess that's not very nice. In response I think we should boycott, send a stern letter, have a vigil, say, "tsk tsk Egypt!"

Yes, I am being flip, and the behavior expected of civilized countries does not include using poison gas against their enemies. But I have no sympathy for Hamas, which is simply a collection of murderers who have become accustomed to an obscene double standard that has protected them from the consequences of their own behavior.

So maybe I will call the Egyptian Embassy and tell them that what they did wasn't very nice. And then ask them where I can get Egyptian Ful Medames, which is sort of a fava bean paste that is fantastic with a bit of garlic, olive oil and chopped parsley. You eat it for breakfast with pita. it's great!
