General Tantawi calls Hamas part of the problem. Saying so shows relations with Washington are close. He showed it by closing Rafah Crossing indefinitely. Two weeks earlier, Morsi extended operating hours and facilitated easier cross-border movement both ways.

Overall, he's more figurehead than power broker. Tantawi decides what matters most. Each supports a common agenda. It's linked to Washington's imperial interests. 

MB members are involved in Syria. They're counterrevolutionaries against Assad. Their hostile Israeli rhetoric masks more cooperative relations.

Sinai's attack bears classic Mossad fingerprints. Militants are easily recruited. Al Qaeda is used strategically. They waged war on Gaddafi. They're active in Syria. 

Perhaps they're responsible for Sunday's attack. Similar ones could happen any time. Timing is always key. Cui bono matters most. Sunday's attack benefits Israel and Washington. Smart money blames them for planning it.

A Final Comment

On August 8, for the first time since 1973's Yom Kippur war, Egypt launched air strikes in Sinai . The state Al-Ahram daily said 33 suspected militants were killed.
