Osama Bin Laden is dead. But 400 of his men have bases in the Sinai desert, and can enter the “free border” between Egypt and Gaza.
Netanyahu’s comments came after Al-Hayyat satellite television station on Monday reported that over 400 al-Qaida members have made their way into the Sinai Peninsula, according to a senior Egyptian security official.
The security sources said the terrorists carried out “a number of attacks against [Egyptian] security forces in the Sinai city of El Arish,” the official told Al-Hayyat.
During the FADC meeting, Netanyahu warned that, “The Muslim Brotherhood is also not insignificant in Egypt.
“We are concerned about what happens around us, especially in Egypt and Jordan,” he said.

The war on Islamic terrorism was not won with the death of Osama Bin Laden. After 10 years of misunderstood American support of “moderate Islam”. the battlefield has been enlarged.
White Egypt falling into the Jihad camp, Israel has got another possible Yom Kippur war problem at its southern border.
Islamic Jihad have established bases in Egyptian Sinai. Now they will have free access to Gaza, where they can freely fire their rockets into Israel. They can not do it from Egyptian Sinai, because such an attack from Egyptian soil would trigger another war between Israel and Egypt.
Israel must warn Egypt. Since Egypt now has recognized the Hamas as the political and military rulers of Gaza, there is no difference between Egypt and Gaza any more. Israel must hold Egypt accountable for all missiles that has been transported into Gaza from Egypt.
An attack with such rockets into Israel, must trigger an Israeli rejection against Egypt. Such an attack is basically a declaration of war against the state of Israel.
If there was a bomb falling on Cairo for every rockets fired from Gaza into Israel, the rocket fire from Gaza would stop. If not another Pan-Arabian war against the Jewish state will be just around the corner.
For Israel, this will be another war for the very survival of the Jewish state.
