Skip to comments.Egypt's parliament wants Israel's ambassador out

The motion is largely symbolic, because only the ruling military council can make such decisions, and it is not likely to impact Egypt's relations with Israel. But it signals the seismic change in Egypt after the ouster of longtime leader and Israel ally Hosni Mubarak a year ago in a popular uprising that ended his 29 years in power.
The vote was taken by a show of hands on a report by the chamber's Arab affairs committee that declared Egypt will "never" be a friend, partner or ally of Israel. The report described Israel as the nation's "number one enemy" and endorsed what it called Palestinian resistance "in all its kinds and forms" against Israel's "aggressive policies."

The first fruits of the Arab Spring...Christian persecution and now an old favorite... open animosity toward Israel. Since the Brotherhood has come to power, Christians have had a bad time in Egypt. Any chance that Obama and Clinton will come to the aid of their fellow Christians?
I don't think either one of them is a Christian. Obama is pretty certainly a Muslim, and Clinton only goes to church for photo-ops--or to an occasional black church for political campaigning.
All future diplomacy can be handled by supersonic air mail.
Moslems have no friends.
Even husbands and wives are not friends.
That’s true. Bill has a high level of Bible knowledge, but Hitlery is utterly ignorant of anything about Christ.
friends they are not and never will be...

“Thank you sir, can I have another?”
Is no one happy over there?
Apparently Egypt, even from ancient Egypt on is ready to get its butt handed to it again, from Israel. How many wars has this been since ancient times??
Strange as it is, the two enemies of Israel now, (Egypt and Iran) have historically at times been its ally and friend as well..
I thought they were one and the same until Obama came along.
