The parable of those who take [beings or forces] other than God for their protectors is that of the spider which makes for itself a house: for behold, the frailest of all houses is the spider's house. If only they understood this! (Quran 29:41)

Rafah border crossing still shut
It was openly very slightly for a couple of days, then shut again presumably in the hope that people wouldn't notice. It will not be opened through negotiations between the Egyptian military junta and Hamas. People (Palestinians or Egyptians) need to march to that border and break down the walls and fences themselves.
