Egypt sends 160 tons of cookies to IsraelSomething tells me those cookies will all end up in the fat stomachs of well fed Israeli children, whilst the Gaza kids starve. More:
The World Food Program and Egyptian authorities sent 160 tons of cookies through the Al-Oja crossing into Israel on Thursday, with the hope that Israeli officials will allow the goods into Gaza, officials said.
Representative to the Palestinian authority from the Al-Oja crossing Omar Hadhoud said the WFP sent the food as urgent humanitarian aid to the children of Gaza, though he noted no special arrangements with Israeli authorities to ensure the transport of goods into the Strip.
Israel has blocked access to all goods it deemed "non-essential" including sweets (possible terrorist item!!), school supplies,(Another possible terrorist Item!!) building materials and until recently, coffee and tea (Serious terrorist Items!) . Hadhoud said he hoped the cookies would travel through the Kerem Shalom crossing, less than a kilometer away from the Egyptian border. Egyptian authorities also noted efforts were ongoing to coordinate the entry of the "Miles of Smiles" convoy into Gaza via the Rafah crossing. Hadoud said the group had 57 containers of supplies and medical equipment. source
