How will they blame Israel for this???

Good for Egypt....
Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit on Saturday said that aid convoys bound for the Gaza Strip will now be banned from traveling across Egypt after activists this week clashed with police, French news agency AFP reported.

On Tuesday clashes erupted between members of the convoy and Egyptian riot police in the Mediterranean port city of El-Arish, and dozens of protesters and police were injured.

Aboul Gheit told government newspaper Al-Ahram that members of one convoy led by British MP George Galloway committed "criminal" acts on Egyptian soil on their way to Gaza.

"Egypt will no longer allow convoys, regardless of their origin or who is organizing them, from crossing its territory," Abul Gheit said, according to AFP.

"Members of the [Viva Palestina] convoy committed hostile acts, even criminal ones, on Egyptian territory," the foreign minister added without elaborating.
