a 28-y-o arab man from Gaza crosses illegally into Egyptian waters, gets shot by Egyptian soldiers

No tolerance of illegal migrants here, particularly those coming from Gaza.

The Israel Video Network asked, "what would happen if Israel did this?"  You could guarantee headline news in the West proclaiming another atrocity by Israel.  A lot of attention is given in western media to Israel's border fortifications and the restriction on trucks with merchandise going into Gaza to 800 a day, but none mention that Egypt allows no trucks in and out of Gaza through its crossing point -- all these have to go through Israel.

There is clearly a double standard involved.
