Foxes and henhouses

My ability to employ irony is getting severely strained:

Abbas and his associates presented a deployment plan for Palestinian presidential guards along the Philadelphi Route, as part of the effort to prevent weapons’ smuggling to Gaza via Egypt.

The plan was derived as part of an effort to increase the strength of the presidential guards, using US support, in coordination with Israel, Jordan and Egypt. — YNet

Keep in mind that the EU and Egyptians had little success at this. I suppose the idea is that the Egyptians and EU had no interest in preventing smuggling which strengthened Israel’s enemies, while Abbas has a real interest in weakening his enemies in Hamas.

There is something profoundly disquieting in the idea of Israel being forced to put all its eggs in the Fatah basket, when this organization is no less hostile to the Jewish state than Hamas.
