Less than one year after closing its headquarters in Damascus, Hamas’s “outside” leadership has found a new home in the Egyptian capital of Cairo.

Hamas leaders are split between Gaza, where they took violent control in 2007, the West Bank, where they seek to gain control, and elsewhere in the region.

London-based daily Al-Hayat reported Tuesday that Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood administration has agreed to open a Hamas office in eastern Cairo and establish a joint committee with Hamas to discuss issues of security along the Gaza-Egypt border.

Hamas’s Gaza Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh will meet with his counterpart Hisham Kandil in Egypt on Thursday, the daily said.

  1. If you’ve never seen the Pyramids or the Valley of the Kings or enjoyed supping a cocktail on an Egyptian beach, forget it, you’ve probably missed your chance.
    Bye bye Egypt!

  2. I would not recommend going to Egypt now or any time in the near future unless you are a Muslim Arab. I wonder how many white people still walk around openly in Cairo? Anybody know?
