A long time ago, the Rafah crossing was heavily supervised, and EU observers worked with Israel and Egypt to ensure that Gaza would not turn into a terrorist haven for Hamas.
My, how times have changed.
In the context of the so-called unity talks in Cairo, Hamas demanded from Egypt some $33 million seized a few years ago - and the new springy Egypt said sure, no problem, its yours!
This may be the money that was taken from Ismail Haniyeh in 2006. At the time he was carrying $35 million in cash, in suitcases, from a fundraising trip to Iran, Qatar and Sudan.
Now Hamas can use that case for its important business of buying bombs and rockets aimed at killing Jews.
