CAIRO (AP) -- The Egyptian Cabinet says it has decided to withdraw its ambassador from Israel over the deaths of Egyptian security forces in fighting after an ambush targeting Israelis near the border between the two countries.

The Cabinet statement issued early Saturday says the ambassador will be withdrawn until Israel investigates the shooting deaths of five Egyptian security forces.

Ever notice, he'll do the talking when it's good news? (Osama, economy gets better for a short time, etc).

When it's bad news others do the talking for him (defense cuts, GITMO stays open, economy dives some more, monetary easing “printing money” etc).

Only when it’s perceived as beneficial will he speak. If it’s a negative story but it shows “leadership” and it doesn’t really hurt him, he’ll come out and lead from the front, i.e. beer summit.

They will defeat Israel, and they know they will. Even Israel knows she's in trouble.

Lebanon last time wasn't a victory for Israel and in case you haven't noticed, Israel is in a pickle when it comes to demographics. The Arab Israeli population is exploding and the population in the occupied territories as well. The West (Europe and North America) are not standing behind Israel like they once did. The power base (political, economic, social) of nations like Iran, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Turkey (a moderate but profiteer) are growing by leaps and bounds while Israel is running flat. Let's talk about this again in 20 years.

again, i hope and pray you are right.

but in 73 it was close,
and the resupply that made the difference,
ain’t coming under Zero.

Obama could even decide to do a “no fly zone”
like in Libya, to protect the new state,
that the U.N. might create next month.

i don’t put anything past him to do...

So Egyptian jihadists try to kill Israelis, Israelis defend themselves, and Egypt cuts ties why? Because the Joooos didn’t just let themselves be slaughtered?!

The world is upside down...

They keep forgetting ... they keep thinking they can defeat Israel

You only showed 20th century dates - Israel's endurance goes MUCH farther back than the last 75 years or so and it will continue to endure until He decides the time is right.

“The Obama White House issued new measures on Friday to prevent genocides and mass atrocities, creating an “Atrocities Prevention Board” in the wake of the failure of the “Never Again” vow taken following the German Holocaust to stop the murders of entire populations.”

Perfect! Obama will use the Holocaust as a reason to prevent Israel from using its nukes to defend itself. These people are PURE EVIL!!!

Under terms of the peace agreement between Israel and Egypt the Sinai was to be demilitarized. Egyptian police were to control the Rafa crossing into Gaza. Elsewhere, the United States paid Egypt $2 billion annually and Israel slightly more to keep the peace.

The USA also paid for a Multinational Force and Observers (MFO) to patrol the Sinai and see that it was demilitarized. Two battalions of foreign troops were placed at a base south of El Arish, and an American batallion was stationed near Sharm al-Sheikh. This was to ensure the Sinai remained neutral and pacific. It appears this has failed. What the Egyptian police who were killed were doing that far south along the border is questionable.

Frankly, after a quarter-century it is time to end the annual payments to Egypt — where we have set up armaments shops for production of weaponry including tanks. Payments to Israel should be made in military hardware as long as Egypt cannot ensure the peace in Sinai.

The State Department should justify ASAP the future payments for an MFO, and in support of Egypt and Israel.
