Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu told reporters in a statement Saturday night in Jerusalem that Israel will stand by the peace treaty with Egypt, and thanked the United States for its assistance in persuading Cairo to take action in protecting people at the Israeli embassy following an attack.
"The attack on the Israeli embassy in Egypt was a very serious thing, but could have been even worse, had they made it past the last door, and hurt our people who were trapped in the embassy," the prime minister said.
"I'm glad we were able to prevent a disaster... Israel will continue to adhere to the peace agreement with Egypt. We are working with the Egyptian government," he said. "The diplomats will return to Egypt."
Netanyahu also thanked the U.S. for its assistance in pressuring Egypt to take action. "I want to thank U.S. President Barack Obama," the prime minister said. "He said he would do all he could to help, and he did. He used America's full weight" to resolve the situation.
Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman added "a huge thanks to those six security guards who kept their composure and behaved heroically. I was impressed by the functioning of our people," he told Channel 10.

How about having the State Dept issue a no travel alert for Egypt?It’s degenerating into a Muslim hell-hole.
Sure. Hillary will go right along with that.
And the problem with having a hack politician running the State Dept.If America can’t or won’t punish it’s enemies while supporting or friends and allies,then we are done.
I hope you’re not done. I hope the US swears in someone on 20/1/13 who can quickly fix the damage. But damaging, it is. In the interim, Bibi should take out Hamas in Aza. If the Egyptians decide to storm our embassy again after that, we’ll be in a good position to win any war that results, and take back the Sinai, and then capture the canal and Cairo. To hell with these chicken-@#$@ games.
will stand by the peace treaty with EgyptPart of Egypt will -- part of Egypt won't. The life of the treaty hangs on who wins out in Egypt.
