RAFAH, Gaza Strip - Palestinian militants forced open a border gate Friday between Egypt and Gaza, letting hundreds of people pour across despite warning shots from Israeli helicopter gunships. [...]

The Rafah border crossing — Gaza‘s main gateway to the outside world — has largely been closed since then.

Militants from the ruling Hamas party said they opened the border gate as a "gift" to the Palestinian people.

The rest of it is the standard pro-Palestinian weeper. No speculation on jihadis coming across into Gaza from Egypt. Would you rule it out?
