Forced evacuations and homes destroyed on Gaza border - world is silent

..because it is Egypt and not Israel that is doing it in response to terrorist attacks against Egyptian security forces in Sinai (which the Egyptians say come from Gaza):
Egyptian authorities on Tuesday ordered residents living along the country's eastern border with the Gaza Strip to evacuate so they can demolish their homes and set up a buffer zone to stop weapons and militant trafficking between Egypt and the Palestinian territory, officials said.

Egypt has also sealed its Rafah border with Gaza, is maintaining a complete blockade and is systematically destroying all tunnels from Gaza into Egypt.

If Israel was doing exactly what Egypt was doing now it would be the only news story being reported. But because it is Egypt and not Israel, it is being completely ignored by the main stream media. Indeed the only news story from the area being reported is the hysterical US and EU condemnation of Israel's plan to build a few more housing units in its capital city; the Obama adminstration (which has still failed to condemn any of the current wave of Palestinian terrorism in Jerusalem) said the housing plan was 'poisen' to the peace process.
