Palestinians & Egyptians upset they were ripped off by each other

This is too funny.

Well…the Palestinian/Israeli conflict isn’t funny, really, but this little story is.

Apparently when masked gunmen blew up a wall in the Gaza Strip that had kept Palestinians in place, allowing them easy entry into Egypt, they took money with them to buy non-essential items that Israel had banned them from buying. Shopkeepers on the Egypt side were only too happy to sell them whatever they liked, and all of this led to a few problems for the shopkeepers, local shoppers and the Palestinian visitors:

  1. The local folks complained that everything had sold out and prices shot up because of supply and demand.
  2. The visiting Palestinians complained that the shopkeepers had sold foods that were past their expiration date (this happens in the UK, too, mostly with Asian/Middle Eastern shopkeepers, but at least they’re marked ‘out of date’)
  3. and finally, the shopkeepers complained that the Palestinians had used counterfeit money to buy the expired foods.

This little tidbit comes from Israel Today, a site that apparently takes the joy of confining people in a dusty, rock-strewn cage and seeing what happens, then reporting on it to the rest of the world.
