The peace treaty contains an entire annex devoted to specific commitments to cultivate every sort of cultural, social and economic tie imaginable. But both Sadat and his successor Mubarak breached every one of them.That's what I thought of when I read that Egyptians are trying to organize a million-man demonstration against Israel:
As the intervening 32 years since the treaty was signed have shown, in essence, the deal was nothing more than a ceasefire...
Egyptian daily al-Youm al-Saba'a reported Wednesday that Egyptian protest organizers are calling for "a million-man protest" outside Israel's embassy in Cairo on Friday.
The protesters, using Facebook and other social media venues, say the focus of the demonstration will be the demand to have the Israeli ambassador expelled from Egypt and Israel's embassy in the capital closed. Recalling an ambassador is considered a step towards the cessation of peaceful relations between countries in diplomatic circles.
Meanwhile, protesters continue to demonstrate outside the embassy for the fifth day in a row, calling out, "Expell the ambassador immediately." Others gathered outside the ambassador's Cairo residence and called fellow citizens to join them in order to "force the ambassador to leave Egypt."
And as I write this, the Arabs are still launching rockets, weapons at southern Israel:
Gaza terrorists fired two rockets at the Eshkol region in southern Israel, shortly after similar attacks on Ashkelon and Ofakim.
