you said that ... Palestinians are not Arab,, that's wrong , I want to say you about something maybe do not know it, in all Arab countries you find a mixture of races, there are Arabs their ancestry from the Arabian Peninsula, and many tribes Whether in Palestine or Egypt or Saudi Arabia or Algeria, Morocco, Libya and Tunisia, Lebanon so, there are Arabs of Arab descent and there are Arabs from non-Arab descent, and the Palestinians, like all Arab tribes they are a mixture of Arab descent and Of non-Arab, Arab are their culture, not race
I will agree the culture is Arab as is the language. Perhaps it is just the Palestinians I knew in Tyler Texas, all of them claimed to be Falistine (Philistine,) Phoenician, Canaanite or a mixture, but they denied being Arab.

But MashaAllah for Egypt easing up and opening the Border.

East Germany behond the wall was OCCUPIED by soviet troops, and the govt there was installed by the USSR.

Gaza has had no Israeli troops since 2005. The folks who run Gaza are Hamas, since they did in Dahlans men.

Gaza has land borders with Israel and Egypt. Israel DOES control who enters or exits Gaza from Israel - which is Israels right, since such movement involves sovereign Israeli territory. Israel does NOT control movement through the checkpoint between Gaza and Egypt. The only thing at legal issue is Israels attempt to control access to Gaza by sea. Some may consider that definitional of occupation, but its pretty different from what most people speaking English mean by occupation, and it must be seen in light of the likelihood of rockets being brought into Gaza by sea, for use against Israeli civilians, by an organization that, unlike the PLO, has not accepted Israels existence, or revised its charter that calls for Israels destruction.

I thought it was only Lebanese who claimed to be phoenician

As for Egypt, they are still finding the border with Gaza to be problematic.

There's hardly any question that the original populations in the area migrated from elsewhere. But where is your proof that the Canaanites came from Arabia? They could just as easily have migrated south from Mesopotamia (as Abraham did).

Perhaps Egypt already has enough things on its plate and prefers not to have an additional problem.
There is a wall on the border with Egypt.
1/3 of all our foreign aid goes to Israel and Egypt, yet neither one is a developing country.
We are Israel's biggest supporter and our government also supports Israel against the Palestinian people; do you really think Egypt wants to lose our money that Washington gives it. Do you think our government is friendly and gives away large sums of money to countries that do not do as they are told.

Put up by Egypt to cut down the crime on their side of the border. Israel nor the US built or funded it

Because its not an "aid" package. Its a payoff to both nations (and lets not forget Jordan) to sign a treaty and its a yearly payoff to keep that treaty in place. Its not really part of USAID its just used as a disbursement point.

We as the US gov't and We as the US citizens as a majority support Israel. There is no doubt of that. But We as the US gov't are one of the few countries that actually follow through with our pledges of funds to the Palestinian people. Numerous Arab countries pledge words with no substinence. We as the US gov't allow many to immigrate to the US and gain full rights as American citizens. Again this is not true of their Arab bretheren. In most of the border countries they live in multigenerational camps and have limited rights.
