The state-run media and Liberals everywhere continue to insist that the revolution in Egypt was made up of millions of Muslims with little Jeffersons and Madisons inside them. They have no evidence to base their wishful thinking on, but Liberals never need evidence, just propaganda.
So we have the newly appointed Foreign Minister saying that Egypt should open the border to Gaza, which would mean an uninterrupted flow of terrorists and weapons and other materials intended to kill Jews.
From early on I said wait until the planned May mega-flotilla, then we will see where this new government is really headed. Egypt sided with Israel on the blockade last time around. Will they do so again? Don’t count on it.
(Arutz Sheva) Egypt’s caretaker prime minister, Issam Sharraf, announced Monday the appointment of Nabil al-Arabi as Foreign Minister. Arabi replaces Ahmed Aboul Gheit, who had headed the Foreign Ministry since 2004.
In an article he penned for Egyptian publication Ash-Shurouk last month, Al-Arabi opined that Egypt should rethink its foreign policy following the January rebellion and lift its blockade of Gaza, “which is contrary to the rules of international humanitarian law which prohibits the siege of civilians, even in times of war.”
Lifting the blockade on the Egyptian border with Gaza could mean that Egypt would allow the uninterrupted flow of weapons into Gaza. This could be a casus belli for Israel, which retreated from Gaza based on the assumption that Egypt would prevent the flow of weapons into it. (more >>)
Further evidence that Nabil al-Arabi could spell trouble is that Hamas is absolutely delighted with al-Arabi being named the new foreign minister.
The Iranian agency quoted Hamas ”We praise the positions of the new Foreign Minister of Egypt Nabil al-Arabi on the issue of the Gaza siege and his rejection of this unjust policy, as well as his position that damage was caused by the Camp David Accords,” Hamas said in a recent statement.
”We hope these positions will be translated during his new post, and that they will be a new beginning in the Egyptian Foreign Ministry’s policy,” Hamas said.
