GREATEST WAR EVER:

The enemy of my enemy: Egypt thaws toward Hamas (AVI ISSACHAROFF January 7, 2017, Times of Israel)

But in the new Middle East, everything is possible. It seems that the current Egyptian leadership, the bitter enemy of the Muslim Brotherhood (which it ousted, and of which Hamas is a subsidiary), has decided to change its behavior toward Hamas. This decision stems not from any sudden affection on Egypt's part for Hamas, but rather from Egypt's hatred of the Islamic State terror group.

This change in direction, which is already visible on the ground, has Israel concerned. Suddenly the Egyptians are opening the Rafah Border Crossing, including for the entry of merchandise. This week, high-ranking Hamas operatives said that former Hamas prime minister Ismail Haniyeh, the incoming chief of its political wing, was planning a visit to Cairo in the near future -- a dramatically symbolic step.

All against the Salafi.
