Good Ol' Egypt

From the LA Times story about negotiations in Egypt about the ship that attempted to run the Gaza blockade --

The Hamas delegation later was stopped from returning to Gaza with $9 million and 2 million euros in their suitcases, an Egyptian security official said.

The official said the group initially refused to be searched by Egyptian authorities at the Rafah border crossing. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media.

The money stayed in Egypt while the delegation was allowed to return to Gaza, said another security official.
Which is least surprising, that Hamas is getting substantial foreign money, that Hamas negotiators abused their diplomatic status in Egypt to smuggle money into Gaza, or that the Egyptians kept the money?   :o)
