Not to mention the $50 billion cost to US

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

Submitted by Charles Gruenspan (United States), Nov 22, 2006 at 16:57

I have been thinking and saying this in private for years. Even the few Israeli diplomats with whom I have spoken over the years (Israel Bonds events, etc.) still delude themselves into seeing the Egypt treaty as something positive to be emulated.

Thank you for finally stating publicly, what should have been obvious to everyone for quite some time now. You could have mentioned that the treaty has thus far cost the US over $50 billion dollars in aid to Egypt, and cost Israel its energy independence and strategic land buffer.
