Sick and Tired of this nonsense

Reader comment on item: Rethinking the Egypt-Israel "Peace" Treaty

Submitted by Mahmoud (Egypt), Jan 26, 2009 at 09:12

I'm sick and tired of those who think that Egypt as a secret agenda of waging an all-out war on Israel. It was us who initiated the peace process in the Middle East. It was us who brokered peace between Israel and Jordan. It was us who brokered the truce between Israel and Hamas. And besides, American leaders have not and will not give Egypt weapons to step up its offensive power.

Egypt Doesn't hold a single weapon to Launch a military Campaign. All the weapons handed over to Egypt are a defencive nature. Our F-16s is not like The IDF F16s. Its fuel tanks are not big like the ones IDF use so can't make a sorty outside Egyptian borders and comeback. We don't hold enough amunition to secure a sweep victory. You have to understand that it's not Egypt interest to lose the US as an ally. Egypt will not act military unless they attack us first.
