I just read on al Jazeera that there has been an explosion in Cairo, killing at least one tourist and injuring another 16 people. The area this took place in is apparently quite a busy tourist destination, so this is definitely aimed at sabotaging the industry. My initial reaction is that this might be the start of an attempt at getting even for Gaza but by whom? I have no idea yet. In December 2008 and early January 2009, the Egyptian government openly assisted with the Israeli state's seige of the people of Gaza and continues to collaborate with the West in preventing aid, weapons and supplies from reaching the besieged Palestinians.
