The report noted a recent attack near the border as evidence of terrorists attempts to take advantage of the anarchy and growing anger in Sinai.

Can someone tell me WHY Israel gave back the Sinai?
the East Bank?
They gave up the Sinai for a few decades of peace. Useless desert for a chance to breath - not a bad deal.
The others, I’m not so sure about. They also gave up the chance to annihilate the PLO in Lebanon. Shouldn’t have taken that deal...
Israel had made a wonderful vacation spot in the Sinai.
Made large investments there.
What happened to all that, they just walk away? Let the mooselimbs turn it back to dust?
