Egypt finds more weapons, explosives en route to Gaza

Palestine Press Agency reports that Egyptian officials have again found a cache of weapons and explosives in Rafah, on their way to Gaza.

This cache included 150 kilograms TNT, and body armor, grenades, land mines machine guns and ammunition.

Egyptian authorities have found dozens of such caches over the past couple of years.

People who complain about Israel's limits on goods to Gaza - like the "Elders" who visited Gaza yesterday - never note these events as they castigate Israel.

Some of the weapons do get through, of course. A hand grenade was found in a Rafah school playground yesterday. Sounds like there are enough weapons in Gaza that people can just accidentally misplace them. (Gaza officials, predictably, say that the grenade was left over from "a previous Israeli invasion.")
