#1 Seems that smuggling has increased since Egypt booted Mubarek. The Sinai, outlaw territory, has been called "the new Somali." Bedouins and militants smuggling arms and explosives through tunnels and via trucks to the Palestinian territories and Lebanon?

#2 A new Somalia? But we've hardly worn the shine off the old one!

I suspect the Egyptians are cracking down here because they fear being on the wrong side of the blast wave, not out of any sense of concern for their neighbors.
