#1 Now there's an unexpected consequence of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood taking over! Hamas, the Gazan Muslim Brotherhood, expected them to back up the War Against the Jooooos to the hilt, instead of this.

#2 The court said the tunnels are not controlled by the state, which makes them illegal.
Guess who's green with envy?

#3 The court said the tunnels are not controlled by the state, which makes them illegal.
But they are controlled by Hamas, the duly elected authority in the territory of Gaza, which is not part of Egypt. Or does the Cairo Administrative Court assert Egyptian sovereignty over the Gaza Strip?
This could become interesting.

#4 Anyone think the Gaza Tunnel Authority is going to give up supervision to a bunch of Egyptians? And what about the Gaza Occupational Health and Safety Administration? And the Gaza Bureau of Labor Statistics?
Criminy people, the Euros are pumping all that cash in, the Gazans need to spend some on political cover and phony-baloney jobs. If not the Gaza Tunnel Authority, then where?

#5 The main problem here is that tunnels have two ends.
One end is under the control of Hamas, the other Egypt. Did the water only flow half way through? 8^)

#6 Seems kind of funny that it appears that Israel's best ally ( for now) os Egypt. First, blasting bad guys, then flooding tunnels (multiple times) and then the Egyptian courts upholding the peace treaty.
Probably has Bambi's panties in a wad.....
