Graphic Video Gets the Palestinians to Hate the Egyptians, For a Change [VIDEO NSFW]

 

“Palestinians in the Gaza Strip were enraged on Saturday after Al Jazeera television aired footage of Egyptian soldiers shooting and killing a Palestinian man who had wandered into the Egypt side of the Rafah crossing through the beach,” jpost.com reports. “In the clip, the man is seen entering the water along the Sinai-Gaza divide. After he steps a few meters into the Egyptian side . . .

he is hit by live fire. The victim has been identified as Ishak Khalil Hassan, 28, from the Gaza City neighborhood of Zeitoun. According to reports, Hassan was known to have suffered from mental and emotional disturbances.”

With friends like these? Although it doesn’t make this execution any better, the incident should be seen in its proper context. Like this:

Gaza, a small impoverished coastal enclave, is under blockade by Israel, and Egypt has kept its Rafah crossing largely shut since Cairo’s Islamist president, Mohammed Morsi, was toppled by the army in 2013.

Egypt has occasionally opened Rafah to allow passengers with foreign passports as well as students and hospital patients to travel. Israel, which waged war with Hamas in July and August last year, allows travel between it and Gaza largely only on humanitarian grounds such as relief aid and medical treatment.

Cairo has accused Hamas, which is close to the Muslim Brotherhood, of helping militants in Egypt’s Sinai desert, which borders on Gaza, attack its security forces. Hamas denies this.

    Nothing like a live fire exercise with a live person down range. Don’t suppose the BLM folks are gonna get all righteous with Egyptian police over this particular murder.

  2. avatar ActionPhysicalMan says:

    That was rather diplomatic.

  3. avatar Frank says:

    So that’s what a secure border looks like.

    1. avatar Hannibal says:

      That’s what I was going to say.

      Bet you don’t have many people trying that…

      1. avatar jwtaylor says:

        No, they usually just pay the bribe and walk through.

          Are you talking about here or there? Guess it doesn’t matter…same difference.

      Would like to see every coyote and drug mule receive the same fate.

      1. avatar jwtaylor says:

        For the coyotes, yes, but the mules are now often women and children, or young men who’s families are held in ransom until they deliver the few pounds that were stuffed into their packs before they headed north. I have no desire to see someone killed because some evil trash made sure that if they didn’t deliver their mother, daughter, or sister would be raped and murdered.

        1. avatar LarryinTX says:

          Agree. They should get a quick training course, an AR, and a free ride.

  4. avatar Vitsaus says:

    I’m sure that the Palestinian outrage will be the same as if he was shot by an Israeli soldier.

    1. avatar Puyallup Devil Doc says:

      Exactly what I was thinking. Maybe they can start stabbing Egyptians now…

    2. avatar LarryinTX says:

      I suspect EXACTLY the same, somebody will have to go stab an Israeli because of this.

    The Value of human life gets cheaper the farther East you go.

    So where is the post about the new anti-gun bill, H.R. 4269?

  7. avatar Ralph says:

    Hassan was known to have suffered from mental and emotional disturbances.

    It seems like a lot of people in that neck of the woods suffer from mental and emotional disturbances.

    1. avatar Mk10108 says:

      No woods it that sandbox

    2. avatar GuyFromV says:

      We talking that dude or the governor of New Hampshire?

  8. avatar Rimfire says:

    So did the NYPD teach them how to shoot or what??

    1. avatar Brentondadams says:

      Yeah.. I hope those were warning shots.

    2. avatar jwm says:

      In order to qualify for NYPD level training you have to hit at least 7 bystanders. This case does not rise to the level of NYPD professionalism.

  9. avatar Mack Bolan says:

    Pretty simple rule, don’t cross the border, don’t get shot. Whats the problem?

    1. avatar Bob R says:

      uhm because borders are arbitrary imaginary lines drawn by statists, some of whom like those in this video, have absolutely no regard for human life.

      Would you have shot the unarmed man if you were there?

      1. avatar Wade says:

        YES

        Borders may be arbitrary, but the problems caused by those who ignore them are not. The boundry laws of sovereign nations should be absolute. It is a reality albeit an ugly one, but a reality.

        1 mile from my house a school bus stops to pick up 43 children in one place. They are all the children of undocumented immigrants. They go to a school my tax dollars pay for. They get assistance my tax dollars pay for. They are taking away from my family.

        1. avatar jwtaylor says:

          No sir. Our government is taking our money, not those illegal aliens. You don’t pay your taxes to them. And if they went away, don’t believe for a second that your taxes would as well.

        ” . . .borders are arbitrary imaginary lines drawn by statists . . .”

        Borders denote countries, countries denote property ownership, property ownership denotes national identity. Property ownership and national identities are a good thing. Don’t trespass onto other people’s property.

    This of course does not include all those drowned when smuggling tunnels were flooded, many collapsing with workers inside. I think the Palestinians already hate the Egyptians, and I think the feelings are reciprocated.

    1. avatar Mk10108 says:

      News flash after living in Kuwait for year, everyone in the region hates the Palestinians.

      1. avatar Big E says:

        That, at least, shows good sense.

  12. avatar Former Water Walker says:

    Ow-that’s cold. And if Israel hadn’t given away Gaza we wouldn’t have THIS-they’ll still blame the Jews.

  13. avatar Tufty says:

    Reminds me of a joke:
    Who put the last 3 bullets into Mussolini?

    25 Italian sharp shooters.

  14. avatar T-DOG says:

    Looked like suicide by Egyptian army to me. Found another video that has more of the beginning. Looks pretty intentional to me. I would have to agree mental illness played a part in this persons poor decision making. Pretty sad really.

  15. avatar AW1Ed says:

    Pay attention Achmed. This here thing at the end of the rifle is called by us infidels a “front sight.” When used in conjunction with this other thing called a “rear sight” it’s useful for actually hitting what you aim at. Like man-sized targets in the surf at 50 yards.

    Were those 1000 meter shots with iron sights? Christ; they couldn’t hit a pig in the ass with a banjo.

    1. avatar Timmy! says:

      “…they couldn’t hit a pig in the ass with a banjo.”

      I am laughing my ass off at THAT image!

    2. avatar Brentondadams says:

      Thank you. As a banjo player, I’m writing that one down

      1. avatar jwtaylor says:

        What’s the definition of perfect pitch?

        When you throw a banjo in the dumpster, it hits an accordion, and they both break.

        1. avatar LongPurple says:

          I’m going to send that one to my musician son. Maybe change the instruments a little.

      2. avatar Jim says:

        as a pig, so am I

  17. avatar The Phantom says:

    Was it The Donald who said “good fences make good neighbors”?

    1. avatar Fuque says:

      The ” Good fences” part is missing…. My chicken coop is more secure than that border.

  18. avatar Rikoshay says:

    And they say there’s no cure for mental problems and emotional disturbance. Proven here while demonstrating a secure boarder.

  19. avatar James in AZ says:

    What’s with all the misses

  20. avatar Gabe says:

    Well, now we know who to blame if we are faced with an impending 7.62×39 shortage.
