Savvy - from french "savoir" meaning to know.

Surrendering all of Sinai; right " up to the rocks" of the Red Sea.

Israel developed the Alba oil fields; value: approx. $100 billions. Not millions. Billions.

In return:

1) little cultural exchange

2) tourism - one way street; from Israel to Sinai and Egypt

3) Oil? I cannot say but most likely Israel having to pay the market value

4) Peace? Technically yes Friendship? No - lo - la. If you count from the egyptians to the Israelis.

5) Any good will from other Arab nations? Jordan ( OOOO I`m shaking. KIng Abdulla is duplicit. In 1967 it took Israel two hours to destroy their air force)

6) Any good will from the Western media? None that I can see

This " funny peace" treaty has left many of us bitter and angry.
