Egypt is allowed to strangle the entire Gaza Strip and deny its people food and fuel, especially on the eve of the holy fasting month of Ramadan, but the media and human rights groups are missing in action.

A secular democratic Egypt - if that is ever possible - and Israel should jointly administer Gaza, and Israel and Jordon (the Arab state in the former British Mandate of Palestine) should jointly administer the West Bank. Egypt and Jordon have peace treaties with Israel and have a stake in that peace continuing. They should work with Israel to that it does.
