Mahmoud Abbas Endorses Egyptian Border Wall with Gaza

Of course, that's the only at all reasonable position. As a sovereign state, Egypt can build whatever on its territory. But will we hear an outcry about this?

From an interview in yesterday's Guardian

The Palestinian president also defended Egypt's decision to build an underground wall on the blockaded Gaza strip's southern border to prevent smuggling through tunnels. "I support the wall," Abbas said. "It is the Egyptians' sovereign right in their own country. Legitimate supplies should be brought through the legal crossings."
