Stay there until I tell you, for Herod is going to search for the child to kill him.” 14So he got up, took the child and his mother during the night and left for Egypt...

That was then, when the infant Jesus could find a safe haven and sanctuary in Egypt. Which is more that can be said for the children of Gaza today looking to find a safe haven in present day Egypt under the dictatorship of Abdul Fattah Al-Sisi. Two thousand years ago when the world was under the hegemony of the Roman Empire it was a very different world from today.
