Cairo, Egypt - The United States has announced that it is planning to help Egypt build a border fence along the Gaza-Egypt border. Washington transferred $23 million worth of special aid to the North African nation as part of its assistance in locating smuggling tunnels.

Over the past few months, smuggling between Gaza and Egypt has garnered more attention in light of the Israeli economic blockade on the small Mediterranean strip of land. Israel is calling on Egypt to improve its crackdown on Palestinian smuggling, which the Jewish state says allows weapons to enter Gaza that are then used against southern Israel.

The planned fence between Egypt and Gaza will employ technology directed at preventing the fence from being damaged. This is in response to Palestinian militants who blew a hole in the current wall between the two nations that allowed hundreds of thousands of Palestinians to flock into Egypt late January and early February.

The American Army Corps of Engineers plans to send teams to Egypt to help push forward the border fence plans.

No timetable has been given yet as to when the wall will be constructed

While building the wall, the Americans also hope to help Egyptian security forces locate and destroy smuggling tunnels into Gaza

Israel has welcomed the move, saying that American participation will help end the movement of weapons into Gaza.

    There goes dinner….. This is simply unbelievable.

    Chertoff bitched and moaned about spending $3 mil in the US and we are going to spend $25 million on a Gaza/Egypt strip???!!!!

    Egypt doesn’t have any cash these days??? What. did they run out of oil revenues???

    I have a better idea. As long as we are going to give away fence plans and hard earned cash in a recession/depression, why don’t we give them our virtual fence that is working so well.

    If they take out virtual fence off our hands we will also throw 5 or 6 million empty cargo containers that China has donated to us.

    They will make a great fence and they can double as cargo containers if Egypt ever comes to terms with their tribal feuds.

    Tax revolt plain and simple. All we are doing is working to the bone just so that our big and out of control government can give other nations a better life. egypt gets a fence and we have to live in third world mexican culture and squalor? Like I have said before, The only taxes I am paying are my property taxes and that’s it! They can come take me and put my ass in a federal prison. I’m done! My deductions and exemptions just mysteriously went way up.

    I was thinking the same thing Eddie. Egypt wants a real fence, not a “virtual fence.” Actually, it’s not a fence. It’s a WALL. I think we wasted at least 28 million on the non-functioning “virtual fence.” I feel like I’m living in a nightmare when I read this stuff.

    quite simply,
    they are gonna box the palestine people in. remember the warsaw ghetto. ironic ain’t it .? watch closely, they are gonna turn around and do that here. if america and the world let this go down, then our global asses are sunk. watch the cheering section here, directed by msm support this . and jesus wept!!!!!!!!!!!

    behind the wall, the world will not see and before long there will be nothing to see.

    Read between the lines. This Wall is NOT being built for Egypt, nor has Egypt requested it, other than after-the-fact. America has been conquered by one hostile foreign power, and is currently being over-run by another.

    Oh, #)@@#)#!Q! This is beyond insulting! They take us for complete fools!

    Yea guys, let’s give them the {Virtual Fence}.

    Reading between the lines, it’s for Israel, right? (no I’m not anti-Semitic), but I’ve read that we’re giving a lot of money to them and regardless of any money given to any nation right now, we’re in a recession/possibly depression as well and I dfon’t think giving money away to any nation is a wise choice right now, but then who has any intelligence in the White House anymore?

    I feel like we have a bunch of “George of the Jungle-Watch out for that tree” morons running the show right now.

    Maybe someone should tell congress so they can contact these people.
