Israeli TV broadcasts operetta that hails Egyptian military coup

Israeli mass media broadcast on Monday morning the operetta “Blessed are the Hands” to hail the Egyptian military forces that carried out the coup in Egypt last month.

Israel’s Channel 2 TV broadcast the operetta after Egyptian military bulldozers razed residential houses in the Egyptian Rafah in an effort to create a 500-meter-long buffer zone with the Gaza Strip.

Observers say this act illustrates the extent to which the Israeli occupation is happy with what the Egyptian army is doing to deter the Muslim Brotherhood’s power in Egypt, and to boost the Israeli siege that has been imposed on the Gaza Strip since 2006.

The proposed buffer zone will further undermine the flow of goods and medicines to Gaza.
