Rethinking the Egypt-Israel "Peace" Treaty

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

Submitted by William Papke (United States), Nov 21, 2006 at 19:50

I have never thought the peace treaty had any meaning except as an expedient measure on Egypt's part to provide the opportunity to establish military parity with Israel. I cannot say I am pleased to hear you agree because I dread being right. I am dismayed and appalled at the sale of any advanced US weapons systems to any Islamic nation. There are only 2 purposes for a military, defense and offense. The nations surrounding Israel have proven their intent more than once. It is long past time that we cease selling arms to any middle east nation except Israel.
