Egyptian Opposition leader Ayman Nour: “Camp David accords have come to an end”
Flopping Aces ^ | 02-15-11 | Curt

I don't think things are playing out like Obama and company had planned:

...the news of the day is none other than Ayman Nour telling a Lebanese TV station that it’s time to revisit the treaty with Israel. Nour isn’t some random talking head; he’s been in and out of prison for years for daring to demand liberal reforms from Mubarak’s regime, and actually went so far as to run against Mubarak for president in the rigged election of 2005. Not only is he a cause celebre in the west, he’s sufficiently prominent that Bush name-checked him in his speech on democracy in Prague back in 2007. He is, in other words, arguably the Egyptian dissident, a guy whom the U.S. theoretically might like to see elected president because his political sensibilities are so western.

And yet, even this guy is hint-hint-hinting that it’s time to tear up the Camp David accords.

Other "fantastic" news:

Egypt's new ruling military council has appointed an Islamist judge to head the committee drawing up a new constitution, angering some of those who argued last week's revolution would deliver the country to the Muslim Brotherhood.

Tarek al-Bishry, the chairman of the constitutional panel, is a respected judge who criticised former president Hosni Mubarak and is regarded as moderate in his views. But he has been associated with Al-Wasat, an offshoot of the Brotherhood.

He has selected a committee made up mainly of judges and politicians, including a judge who is a Coptic Christian, but also a former Muslim Brotherhood MP. There are no women.

Wael Abbas, the best-known human rights blogger in Egypt, who was sentenced to prison by the Mubarak regime last year, said it was a "worrying" choice.

So, the end result of Obama backing the protestors will be the end of the Camp David accords and Israel being forced to defend itself on even more fronts.

Is it 3am yet?

They're playing out exactly as Obama and company had planned.

"I don't think things are playing out like Obama and company had planned:"

Agree. This sounds like it couldn't have come out better for Obama - paves the way for an Islamist takeover and the breach of the treaty with Israel.

Obama may be dumb and lazy, but he’s also evil. This is exactly what he wanted.

In fact, his first foreign policy speech after becoming President involved going to Egypt and praising the virtues of Islam.

And he’s been working toward this from the time he was elected.

Things are getting serious!

Time for Obama to go on vacation again!

...or at least go out for more ice cream!

That makes the assumption he planned. I have no doubt his masters planned this, but strongly suspect no one in the White House was involved.

Then Israel should immediately reoccupy the Sinai and Gaza.

Bump. If 'rats can stab Presidents Reagan and Bush in the back what's to stop them from betraying the Jews? Gimme a break.

The problem is, now Egypt has M1 Abrams tanks.
They even have a factory.

Does that mean our billions of dollars of aid to Egypt has come to an end as well? Alas, probably not.

The Jimmy Carter Camp David Accords should have never been implemented.

Can't wait to see the photographs an IAF F-16's Blue Star of David on their tails flying over the pyramids. I'll love to take it myself.

Those factories will be the first targets to be bombed.
I bet Israel is mapping out the campaign now.

Amazing how someone who is *not in power* can get airtime and talk about policies of a government not in his control. Why, it’s almost enough to make one suspect that the MSM is made up of agitprop manure spreaders. Thanks Starman417.
