Not My Usual Bag, but Whoa

Seeing as I have a good buddy who lives in Jordan, I tend to keep up with developments in the Middle East (yeah, I worry about you, A-man). I've been watching this stuff with Israel and the Palestinians with a lot of trepidation. Ordinarily, I like to steer clear of stuff that smacks of politics, but when I saw this, even I said "whoa".

Egyptians open fire on Palestinians

Apparently the other countries there don't want to get in the middle of this, even at the cost of lives.
