The Problem with Egypt

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

Submitted by Gunther Schiff (United States), Nov 21, 2006 at 13:47

The United Staes, apparently in reliance on the Egypt-Israel "peace treaty" has endowed Egypt with billions of dollars of aid. Yes, the Israelis too are recipients of the money from the United Sates, but they are not a closed dictatorship busily promoting hate and anti semitism and repeatedly showing the old czarist lies about Jews "The Protocols of the Elders of Zion" on governement sposnored television.

Apparently the only use Egypt has for the American supported armament is potentially against the Israelis. The likelihood of an atomic Armageddon grows closer as Egypt, its Arab neighbors, Syria, and Iran increase the armaments and hate mongering of Hamas, Hesbollah as well as by the increasing modernization of their armed forces. It is unlikely that Israel will go down without using whatever armaments it has, thus the mideast can again account for the start of a a possible global conflegration before even global warming has its negative impact. Not a pretty outlook for my grandchildren and possibly for their progeny.
