Suleiman: Israel may consider re-occupying Sinai

In an interview with Egyptian daily al-Youm al-Saba'a, Suleiman analyzed relations between the two neighboring countries in the wake of the Arab Spring and the ongoing terrorist activity originating from the Sinai Peninsula. "I'm fearful of the price Egypt will have to pay if Israel decides to reoccupy Sinai," he said.





"I fear that Israel thinks Egypt has become one of its enemies," Suleiman said referring to the close relations between Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood and the current situation in Sinai.

      Absolutely right, because of the great benefits of the peace treaty Israel will not invade Sinai. In this treaty no Egyptian Army in Sinai , Egypt recognize Israel , Egypt stop supporting Palestininans, Egypt offers Gas and oil with lowest prices and many many benefits to the Israeli side after all If you are a Jew why will you risk to make a war with over 85 million Egyptians next to your borders ?

  • Hard to believe Israel will actually retake the Sinai, but as long as Islamic groups use the Sinai in order to attack Israel, and seems Egypt can't do much about it (2 Egyptian policmen/soldiers were executed 2 days ago in the Sinai by Islamic militants which managed to flee), it is possible Israel will eventually launch it's own operation/s inside Sinai- the deal back in 1979 was giving the Sinai back to Egypt in exchange for peace (quiet border) - once the border is no longer quiet then the de More..

      If you were reffering to Israel, then I don't see any 'shit-brewing' about this: this was said by an Egyptian official, not by Israel.

      He is the only Egyptian for now who can see that the current situation of the Sinai becoming a radical Islamic intitey which don't hesitate to launch attacks against Israel, might have consequences for Egypt.

      Attacks on israel come from outside.
      We can deal with them.Makes live not easy but we take it.
      Europe on the other hand is being attacked from the inside. No way you will be able to deal with it.
      And your lives will be over (unless you convert to islam).
