Israel is Egypt’s no. 1 enemy, MPs declare

The lower house of the Egyptian parliament has unanimously approved a text declaring that the zionist entity is the number one enemy of Egypt and calling for the expulsion of the zionist entitys ambassador and a halt to gas exports to the zionist entity.

On Monday, Egyptian MPs voted by a show of hands on the text of a report, which was compiled by the Arab Affairs Committee of the People's Assembly (lower house of parliament).

"Revolutionary Egypt will never be a friend, partner or ally of the Zionist entity, which we consider to be the number one enemy of Egypt and the Arab nation," the report declared, adding, "It will deal with that entity as an enemy, and the Egyptian government is hereby called upon to review all its relations and accords with that enemy."

In 1979, Egypt became the first Arab country to sign a peace treaty with the zionist entity, but was compelled to agree to supply gas to the zionist entity as one of the main economic conditions of the US-sponsored peace deal.

According to the results of an opinion poll conducted by Synovate for Press TV and published on October 3, 2011, an overwhelming majority of Egyptians oppose the terms of the country's gas deal with the zionist entity.

In the poll, seventy-three percent of the respondents said they were opposed to gas exports to the zionist entity. Only 9 percent said they approved of Egypt supplying gas to the zionist entity, and 12 percent had no opinion.

The issue of supplying gas to the zionist entity has always been a contentious topic for Egyptians, who view the zionist entity as an enemy and oppose engaging in any form of business with it.

According to a $2.5 billion export deal with the zionist entity, signed in 2005,The zionist entity receives around 40 percent of its gas supply from Egypt at an extremely low price.
