    Egyptian official tells Hamas: 'You're endangering our lives,' 'blood of Gaza residents is on your hands.' Sinwar: We didn't fire anything.

    Egyptian intelligence officials seethed with anger on Thursday night after missiles were fired from Gaza at Tel Aviv, Israel Hayom reported.

    One official, who was one of the Egyptian delegates present in Gaza during those dramatic moments, told Israel Hayom's Daniel Sirioti about the delegation's conversation with Hamas Thursday night.

    "At the beginning of the meeting, the atmosphere was very relaxed," the Egyptian official told Sirioti. "We had just returned from Israel with answers, we estimated that Hamas would accept them and allow us to begin a stable, long-term peace. A few minutes later, one of the Egyptian delegation's aides entered the room looking worried, and gave the delegation leaders his cellular phone."

    "The smiles immediately turned into frowns, and senior delegates turned to Hamas leader Yahyah Sinwar and yelled at him: 'Where do you think you'll end up with your double play? We're sitting here to finalize a peace agreement with Israel, and behind our backs you allow your people to fire missiles at Tel Aviv??'

    "'If Israel decides to start a widescale operation in Gaza, this time we're not going to do anything to stop the Israeli attacks. Even if Israel decides to bring down your rule in Gaza by assassinating every single one of you, while they reconquer Gaza. Egypt and its regional allies will not lift a finger to stop the Israeli response.'"

    Looks like Hamas/Gaza has finally worn Egypt out too.

    Is there anyone else left who Hamas hasn't dissed?

    It looks like Egypt and the Gulf Arabs may have had enough. Let's see what this Friday's border riots bring. The only thing that has slowed them at all is a few temporary cease fires negotiated by Egypt. This marks a big change with the Egyptians finally washing their hands of this Hamas/Iran insanity. Soon and very soon something is going to give, the situation in Gaza is a ticking time bomb.
    Keep watching
