Defense Minister Barak Statement Regrding Situation in the South
(Communicated by the Defense Minister’s Media Adviser)
Defense Minister Ehud Barak, today (Sat.) 20.08.11, held a special meeting to evaluate the current situation, with C-O-S Maj.-Gen. Benni Gantz, and inteligence and security personel.
The Defense Minister noted the importance of the Peace Agreement with Egypt and emphasised our apprecation for the level-headedness and responsibility demonstrated by the Egyptians. "Israel is sorry for the deaths of the Egyptian policemen during the attack on the Israel-Egypt border." Defense Minister Barak ordered an IDF investigation and called for a joint investigation with the Egyptian military to examine the circumstances of the event. According to the results of the investigation, proper conclusions will be drawn.
Defense Ministe Barak said, "The peace agreement between Israel and Egypt is of enormous importance and it's strategic value to Middle East stability is great."
Now why have we apologized to Egypt for killing Egyptian policemen? They were supposed to have been guarding the border. They failed. Terrorists entered Israel and attacked Israelis. If some Egyptian police died as a result of that attack, they should blame the terrorists, not Israel. And Israel should never apologize! We should be demanding apologies from Egypt!!!
