Hamas Threats Keep Thousands of Palestinians Stranded in Egypt

They'll kill anyone. From Hamas Threats Keep Thousands of Palestinians Stranded in Egypt:

Hamas' threat to open fire at thousands of Palestinians stranded in Egypt has thwarted Israeli plans to open the Kerem Shalom crossing to let the travelers return to their homes, Israeli defense officials said Wednesday. Palestinians shelled the crossing last week, forcing its closure after it had been used to send food and other supplies into Gaza. Some 6,000 Palestinians have been marooned on the Egyptian side of the border.
