EL-ARISH, Egypt (Ma'an) -- At least 80 Egyptian political activists arrived at Egypt's Rafah crossing to commemorate the 63rd Nakba Day, after eluding that country's security services.

The activists carried Palestinian flags and changed slogans demanding and end to Israel's siege on Gaza, the recognition of the right of Palestinians displaced in 1948 to return to their homes, and condemned Israel's occupation of Palestine.

The day before, Egyptian authorities blocked access to the Sinai peninsula to prevent the march of protesters from Cairo to Gaza, as thousands gathered at the Israeli embassy in Cairo, AFP correspondents said.

The march was due to leave from Cairo's Tahrir Square on Saturday to protest the Israeli occupation of Palestinian land, and call for the right of return of Palestinian refugees and the release of all Palestinian prisoners.

An estimated 60,000 Palestinians live in Egypt, many of them refugees.

Neither side can accept what the other side can afford:
- Israel will never accept the refugee return (or national suicide), and
- Palestinians will never accept giving-up refugee return !!

And thus, the peace proccess was dead from the very beginning,
and all the involved parties should have stopped pretending,
that there was any chance of peace, or statehood, a long time ago !!!
