Israel urges Egypt to keep peace treaty

Al Akhbar English | Sunday, July 1, 2012

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has sent a letter to Egypt’s newly-elected President Mohammed Mursi, begging him to uphold a peace treaty between the two countries, Israeli media said on Sunday.

The letter, first reported by Israeli daily Haaretz, “stressed Israel’s desire to continue cooperation and to strengthen the peace,” an Israeli source told AFP on condition of anonymity.

The letter was sent “in the last few days,” the source added, with Haaretz reporting that it was delivered to Mursi, who ran as the candidate of the Muslim Brotherhood movement, via the Israeli embassy in Cairo.

Haaretz said that Netanyahu in his message “offered to cooperate with the new government in Cairo and expressed…hope that both parties will observe the Egyptian-Israeli peace treaty.”

Netanyahu “emphasized that honoring the agreement is in the interest of both countries,” the newspaper added.

The report comes only a day after the incoming Mursi promised to fight for the rights of Palestinians, who have been oppressed by Israel since its inception in 1948.

During an address to university students the new Egyptian premier announced his support for the Palestinians until they “regain all their rights.”

“I announce from here that Egypt, its people and presidential institution stand with the Palestinian people until they regain all their rights,” he said.

Egypt’s leader Anwar Sadat signed a peace treaty with Israel in 1979, despite the wishes of millions of Egyptians.

Former Egyptian dictator Hosni Mubarak was a key ally of Israel until he was toppled in a popular uprising last year.

Israel has watched with increasing concern as the introduction of democracy in Egypt has led to increasing criticism of the state’s relationship with Tel Aviv.

Last year activists stormed the Israeli embassy in Cairo, while protests against the oppression of Palestinians are common.

Haaretz said Israeli officials, after consulting with Washington, had decided to put off attempts to organize a phone call between Mursi and Netanyahu.

Israel is not looking for Peace



Martyred By Israeli Occupation Attacks

انّا للہ و انّا الیه راجعون

May Allah Subhana wa Ta’ ala grant the Shuhada Jannatul Firdaus, and ease it for their families, loved ones and anyone around them. Allahumma Ameen ya Rabbil Alameen. ‘ Inna Lillahi wa ‘ Inna ‘ Ilayhi Raji’un, Allahu Akbar


* The list of shuhada does not display, the numerous victims of the zionist occupation which are undocumented by media. Nor it displays the victims of the “silent onslaught” due to restrictions of movement, ability to go to hospitals for treatment or life saving surgery, due to lack of medication because of the blockades and so on. For example: The Slow Motion Genocide by the Siege on Gaza only, killed 600 patients since Gaza got under Israeli Siege.

Neither does this list, display the avoidable mortality. A clear and statistical factual evidence, about the number of deaths due to indecent ruling by occupation forces. For even an occupier has obligations under International Laws, Geneva Convention and the Hague regulations, which it is neglecting. These circumstances, together with deliberate policies of the occupier to neglect and even deny every basic human right, severes avoidable mortality which is totally silenced by media or reporting organisations. While in the Holocaust, 1 on 6 Jewish people directly died of deliberate neglect, so if we believe the facts over 1 million due to avoidable mortality, neither should these same circumstances be ignores which are ongoing in Palestine. For this report displays a avoidable morality of at least 0,5 million Palestinians.

How many more dead corpses of Palestinians does the international community need to see in order to act? How many more cruelties and violations of Human Rights, Regulations and International Law will be needed to intervene so this ongoing warcrime is being stopped once and for all.
