Before dawn, a series of explosions, Palestinian gunmen blowing up parts of the border wall at Rafah between Gaza and Egypt. Then this, wave after wave of Palestinians crossing over, Egyptian guards watched but did nothing to stop them.

"We're feeling so happy. This is a happiness for all the Islamists worldwide and a victory for them, God Willing."

As the day wore on, a steady flow of desperate Palestinians streamed across, 50,000 by early evening by Egypt's count. They bought food, fuel and other basics they've been days without. And Egypt says the crossings won't be stopped as long as Gazans are starving. The exodus follows Israel's closing of its Gaza border crossings Friday. It said to punish Gaza's Hamas leadership after days of rocket attacks on southern Israel. Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh is calling for crisis talks with Egypt and power-sharing negotiations with his Palestinian rival, President Mahmoud Abbas.

"What happened was an expression of popular rage, an evidence that despair has reached a climax and the siege can not continue."

Israeli leaders say the Palestinians have the power to stop the siege. Militants need to quit firing rockets into Israel.

"None of us here love the situation in Gaza, thus we haven't any pleasure to see people suffering, or to see people seeking in the dark. They left Gaza completely. They don't intend to return." The fall of the Rafah wall punches new holes in Israeli efforts to keep pressure on the Gaza Strip in the face of an international outcry over shortages in the territory. Palestinians call "One big jail".

The surprise shopping spree in Egypt is ending for deprived Gazans. Egyptian troops in riot gear backed by water cannon are moving to reseal the border at Rafah. They are meeting resistance. There have been scuffles since they started taking up positions at dawn. Gazans already on the Egyptian side are being allowed to cross back over with the supplies they bought over the past two days. But those who turned up hoping to continue the spree are being turned back. They've had a rare taste of freedom since Palestinian gunmen used landmines to destroy parts of the concrete border wall. A natural explosion of anger and frustration explained Hamas leaders in Gaza after suffering a week-long Israeli supply siege.

The United States and Israel have pressured Egypt to reseal the border, worried militants among the 70,000 Gazans who've made the crossing are restocking their weapons stores. The blockade was imposed after a rain of rockets on southern Israel. Egyptian troops are carrying out their orders but their task isn't going to be easy - thousands of Palestinians are still getting through, more than half of the border wall has been demolished.

They don't intend to return. 听起来有点不太像是吧?但偶个人觉得account是说不过去滴,既然已经left completely了,应该就义无反顾了吧 tongue.gif
