By Micah HalpernI've Been Thinking:
Over the past month Egypt has begun to crackdown on the terror and anarchy that has been engulfing Sinai.
The new government in Egypt has begun to blow up tunnels and to arrest terrorists.
This crackdown in Sinai means that Egypt is separating the Muslim Brotherhood of Egypt from Hamas in Gaza. Do not mistake this for a pro-Israel or a pro-Western move. The crackdown against the terrorists is absolutely and exclusively in the best interest of Egypt - otherwise anarchy would continue to prevail.
Egypt blew up 102 smuggling tunnels. They arrested 103 terrorist and they killed 60. They confiscated the 40 fuel depots with 2.7 million liters of diesel and gasoline. During the conflict with the terrorists 20 police officers and soldiers were killed.
These numbers are very telling.
This is proof that the new interim government in Egypt has begun to take charge. The new government sees the danger in anarchy and terror. They do not want the Muslim Brotherhood stimulating terror.
This is a very important and encouraging sign. It portends well for the new, new Egypt.
