“Egypt doesn’t need investment from the enemy” says Egypt’s minister of finance.
“Egypt’s peace treaty with Israel should not be taken for granted” says Egypt’s foreign minister.

Peace treaty misinterpreted
Signing a peace treaty with Israel doesn’t mean that Egypt should keep silent about the Israeli aggression and the ongoing daily grab of the Arab land in Palestine. It doesn’t mean watching a big Arab country like Iraq shamefully dismantled without moving a finger.It doesn’t mean approving of the ethnic cleansing of Palestinians and tightening the inhuman blockade on Gaza. It doesn’t mean turning a blind eye to the hostile wars of Israel in Lebanon and Gaza. And it certainly doesn’t mean that the only comment any Egyptian foreign secretary could make concerning Israel’s wrongdoings is, “see no evil, hear no evil”.
Why did a relatively poor country like Egypt deprive it’s people of critically needed foreign exchange, for the benefit of a country that could afford to have one of the largest weapons of mass destruction stockpiles?
