The Egyptian army struck terrorist camps in the Sinai over the course of Tuesday night, killing an estimated 20 terrorists. The strikes followed a large-scale attack near Gaza on Sunday, where terrorists attacked Egyptian army posts and then attempted to enter Israel, and a shooting attack late Tuesday night in Al-Arish.

The army used combat helicopters to hit the camps. The counter-terror assault is the first time the Egyptian army has used missiles in Sinai since attacking Israel in the 1973 Yom Kippur War.

Following the Sunday attack, in which 16 soldiers were killed, Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi and his top general warned that retaliation would be soon to come.

They also instructed soldiers to open fire on terrorists immediately in the future.

The Egyptians can fight terror in the Sinai IF THEY CHOOSE TO DO SO. Now that Egypt is run by the Islamic (Muslim) Brotherhhod will we see that new government crack down on the MORE radical Islamists, just as Mubarak and Sadat did? After all, they are all Brothers who kill each other during Ramadan...

“They also instructed soldiers to open fire on terrorists immediately in the future.”

Just speculation, but maybe the terrorists jumped the gun, and to allow 'em into Israel would expose the intentions of the new Muslim Brotherhood Egypt before enough Arab states were under the Muslim Brotherhood yoke. So they whack a few expendables to fake support for the treaty.

Syria is not yet controlled and they ain't got started in Jordan yet.

The MB probably wants to get a lot stronger before they startup with the final solution for Israel and the world wakes up.

OK, shoot to kill?

How about imploding all those undergound tunnels between Gaza and the Sinai?

THAT would be a good start but then again, HAMAS will cry to their brother Egyptians and Bank Emoon (UN) will make a pointless statement to which Assad in Syria will blast another one of his cities to rubble to which the Palestinians will ask that Assad no longer shell Palestinians inside of Syria to which Kofi Annan will condemn the Israelis and everybody will be happy!!!

Enh. Nothing like Ramadan to get Muslims at each other’s throats. Bad mood, partied all last night, have to fast tonight, and his great grampa spat at my great grampa 100 years ago, and he just bumped into me and didn’t say “excuse me” with sufficient sincerity. Time to whip out the old curvy dagger.

From the 1962 film staring Peter O'Toole (Laurence of Arabia: (Laurence speaking to Omar Sharif after he murdered a fellow Bedouin):

“So long as the Arabs fight tribe against tribe, so long will they be a little people, a silly people - greedy, barbarous, and cruel, as you are”.

That was in or about 1917? Today, the Arabs have never changed and it pains them because they know it is all true. They take their frustration, anger and mounting angst out on everyone (especially the Jews)by living in denial, lying and behaving as they did 3,000 years ago, 100 years ago...today.

This sounds like it was staged for U.S. consumption, to keep the aid billions rolling in.

Remember that order, Egyptian soldier, the next time you see a person walking around wearing “Terrorist” on his Tee Shirt!

I seriously doubt that the Egyptians actually did it...sounds more like U.S. Spec Ops/SAS, with Night Stalker support.
