Nothing I could say about Palestinians forcing open the Gaza-Eygypt border at Rafah could possibly measure up to that action's power.

Egypt is already trying to close the border. Maybe by the time I wake up tomorrow this relief will be shut off again, but maybe the Egyptian government will find it hard to shut people back in. It's the world's biggest prison break and should remind everyone of the possibility and power of resistance.

For more Raising Yosuf, brownfemipower has a great collection of links, and Al Jazeera is always good.

    Rather sad to see Arabic solidarity undermined with the Egyptians attempting to act as jailers. Hopefully this temporary break into Egypt will result into a permanent break into occupied Palestine (the area known to the Zionists as Israel)
