There are two people Arabs will never accept in the Middle East.

1st, Jews & 2nd, Persian (Iranians). When Iranians called on other Muslims to help them with their war with Iraq, the Arab response was - Persians?! "Fire Worshiping Aliens".

Anti-Semitism and Racism is unfortunately is taught through out Mideast. It seems Arabs would rather cut their own arms off than sign a peace treaty with either one.

Egypt and other Arab countries are just buying time for now. Their timetable is measured in centuries not in months.
