Israel has always criticized Egypt-Israel peace agreement of 1979 which basically legitimized the Israili state itself. The Israilis have called it the ?cold peace? and has been describing Egypt hostile and dangerous Egypt. They described Egyptian elite as anti-Semitic, Egyptians were never allowed to visit Israel and for Israelis Egypt was thought to be dangerous Only a decade ago Israeli politician Avigdor Lieberman proposed that Israel bomb the Aswan Dam, just as Yigal Alon did 20 years earlier.
Now as the Husni Mubarak?s government is shaking suddenly peace has become an asset for Israel, and suddenly Egyptian President has become Israel’s best friend. A reporter in Israeli newspaper calls this behavior ?is Like a man about to lose the woman he abused for years, and only then recognizes her value? It may be too late for Israel nowho is frightened of what the future will bring and of the new government in Egypt which might revokes the peace treaty.
Israel’s prime minister has forbidden his cabinet ministers from speaking on the subject – and they are even obeying him showing the typical fear of real and imagined dangers, Warning, danger: the peace is about to be torn up.
‘Israeli connection’ to Egypt riots?
To add further to worries of Israel A young Egyptian woman claims that the Mossad trained her to assist in bringing down Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak’s regime. In an interview with Egypt’s Al Mehwar network the woman, who noted that her facebook page was extremely popular, said that she was sent by an American organization to be specially trained “by Israelis and Jews” in Qatar.
Rumors are also surrounding the President Husni Mubarak?s son is already in Tal Aviv and president himself is also heading for Tal Aviv.
What is cooking in the middle east why is Israel offering refuge to the president and the family why they changed the minds now after 30 years.
They want to save the same peace that would have no chance of being accepted by the current government or Knesset. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu would have never signed it, and the Knesset would never have approved it.
It’s not difficult to imagine what would happen today if Egypt would offer peace for land: endless negotiation over security arrangements, interim agreements, water arrangements and air arrangements – and no peace.
A peace for which Lieberman would have made threats, Ehud Barak would have been evasive, Rabbi Ovadia Yosef would have issued a religious ruling, the commentators would have warned of the many dangers, the public would have been apathetic, and Netanyahu would have been too cowardly to make a decision. In all, Israel would have said no to peace.
But now, when the same peace is threatened from Israel, peace has again become a dream, a toy it won’t give up. The Egypt’s impressively fateful moment which will bring democracy there is described in Israel as ?A terrible disaster?, ?Big trouble? The Israeli generals and military correspondents, talk of Egypt as an enemy state. The Israeli write reports that ?Everything is presented with red flashing danger lights. The Muslim Brotherhood is not only taking over Egypt, but also marching on Israel. ?
Israel has now realized the value of peace treaty with Egypt after 32 years. This treaty prevented a great deal of killing, provided much security and quiet, and protected many resources for Israel.
More for Israel is that Egypt’s banned Muslim Brotherhood movement has unveiled its plans to scrap a peace treaty with Israel if it comes to power, a deputy leader of the party Rashad al-Bayoumi, said in the interview with NHK TV.
Al-Bayoumi said the peace treaty with Israel will be abolished after a provisional government is formed by the movement and other Egypt’s opposition parties.
“After President Mubarak steps down and a provisional government is formed, there is a need to dissolve the peace treaty with Israel,” al-Bayoumi said.
