Cold peace with Egypt and Jordan has served a useful purpose

Reader comment on item: Feeling Optimistic about Israel and the Emirates

Cold peace with Egypt and Jordan did not meet expectations but has served a useful purpose - if only by breaking a united anti-Israel front. Peace has become particularly important after Hamas's takeover of Gaza (where Egypt limits their ability to smuggle weapons and militants)and common stance against the moslem brotherhood. One can even say that this peace has stood the test of time, despite the early demise of its instigator Anwar Sadat.

One can even say that Sadat is a great example for Palestinian leaders.

Daniel Pipes replies:

I disagree. Those cold peace relations could break into hot war at any moment. Plus, the lack of treaty with Syria has not led to any conflict with it since 1982
