Reader comment on item: Assessing the Egypt-Israel Peace Treaty, Thirty Years Later

Submitted by james burke (Canada), Apr 12, 2009 at 15:17

The treaty with Sadat has brought Israel a "cold peace" on its south bank but at a great moral cost; terrain that has greatly increased the dependence of Israel on the tired US taxpayer and it had to engage in relations with Turkey to use their airspace to train their pilots, while ignoring their masacres of Christian Armenians.

The re-claiming of the Sinai will immediately embolden the supporters of Israel and of course inflame the arab muslims and persian muslims; which in and of itself does not take much.

Once reclaimed, and the UNIFIL observers, maintenance workers and egyptian soldiers are no longer there, Israel can relax knowing that it will be respected by the arab muslims. Israel can now launch an air attack to any location in the ME while the land acts as a buffer zone, industrial zone, R&D zone, efficient spyzone and vacation spot.

I envision an attack comparable to the attack on Fort Knox in the film Goldfinger. Despite the presence of UNIFIL and Egyptian soldiers, I do not foresee great losses on their side and no loss of Israeli soldiers. And of course , no more Egyptian tea from their Egyptian soldiers because there will not be any Egyptian soldiers there.
