Skip to comments.Egypt's Morsi says Israel 'aggression' in Gaza unacceptable
Posted on 11/15/2012 2:43:11 PM PST by Tailgunner Joe
AFP - Egypt's President Mohamed Morsi rejected on Thursday what he called Israel's aggression in Gaza, saying it threatened to destabilise the region, while Cairo called on the US to stop Israel's strikes.
"The Israelis must understand that we do not accept this aggression, which could lead to instability in the region," Morsi said in televised remarks, as Israeli air forces pummelled Gaza and militants fired rockets back in a deadly tit for tat.
Egypt's Islamist administration, which has close ties with Gaza's ruling Hamas movement, recalled its ambassador on Wednesday in protest at the Israeli operation, which began with the targeted killing of a top Hamas military commander.
In an earlier telephone conversation with US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Egyptian Foreign Minister Mohammed Kamel Amr "called on the United States to immediately intervene to bring to an end the Israeli aggression against the Palestinian people in Gaza," the ministry said in a statement.
"As long as the Israeli aggression continues, the situation will worsen in a way that will make it uncontrollable," Amr told Clinton late Wednesday.
He called on Washington to "use its contacts with Israel to bring to an end this aggression."

So let’s see if I got this right.
Hamas shooting rockets into Israel is OK.
Israel firing back is “unacceptable”?
Is that about right?
And Morsi is a sinister and evil scumbag.
Which is why 0bama supports him.
so is the population of Egypt to high for Morsi ?
Egypt just needs to import all the Palis. Problem solved.
Hmmm, he’s not threatening to attack Israel this time. I wonder if the Mossad handed him some pix of himself taken through a rifle scope?
Yep, you’ve got it right.
What’s fun to ponder, is that the Arabs actually see this as a powerful argument.
Depends on what you’re arguing I suppose. If we’re talking the average intelligence of certain groups of people, it could be very relevant.
Egypt got it’s first lesson about the Jewish people from Moses - they about to get another lesson from Bibi - just sayin
Morsi, how did an aggressive stance against Israel work out last time? If I recall correctly, they handled Egypt in a matter of hours while simultaneously fighting another war. You mat be well advised to shut the hell up!
Yes, as Obama and pals helped Eqypt’s Muslim Brotherhood oust Mubarek and Obama jumped right in on aiding the same rotten bunch in Libya.Perhaps some will look up Obama’s ring and finally realize he is a Muslim. No Christian wears a ring that says “There is no god but Allah.” Our Clown in Chief does.
If you shoot a mortar or rocket at me and don’t get me killed, I will kill you. Good enough for me, why not for an Israeli?
They might still be roasting marshmallows over the remains of that bridge down at the State Department.
Tick, Tick, Tick ...
Just ask him what he would do if a group lobbed missiles into eqypt?
Oh man, I TOTALLY had this story wrong - I thought it was Hamas that was attacking Israel.....glad to get that corrected so we all now know that big bad evil Israel is picking on the sweet folks in Gaza. Sheesh.
The Gazans elected Hamas as their government. So they are complicit in their own misery.
Clever, very clever.
OTOH According to Morsi; Hamas firing rockets into Israel apparently is. /s
STFU, morsi...you subhuman garbage. I hope this moozlum bum takes a trip to gaza tonight to gain some first-hand knowledge.
You got it right - Obama’s plan is starting to gel just the way he wants it.
In war it's not good to be so self assured. Many people have had their butts handed too them when they expected an easy win. The Arabs are aware of history too. I think they have planned their defense of Gaza, to make it difficult for the Israelis.
Personally, I think the Israelis should level the Gaza strip and expel all Arabs to Egypt. I believe the Gaza strip came into existence at the end of the 1948 war. It has outlived it's usefulness and needs to be added to the dustbin of history.
He called on Washington to “use its contacts with Israel.”
Good Luck with that Morsi. Our Muslim President is not on the best of terms with Israel and unlike Obie they stand and defend instead of “stand down” when their people are in danger.
Of course if you really wanna try to do something about it, come and get a piece of the IDF. It will be a one-way trip for your and your Bruthas I assure you.
I was elated when that happened. Now, when Hamas attacks, the entire populace has approved and is complicit.
Laissez les bon temps rouler! Go Israel!
Hamas shooting rockets into Israel is “acceptable” AND “non-violent”.
Obammy’s brotherhood speaks. Big surprise here. We are in the end times.
The koranimals don't have the IQ to realize nonsense when they spout it. Must be an inbred cultural thing.
The regions is sure being destabilized, but it's the huge increase in rocket attacks into Israel that triggered it.
Any who is unable to reach that simple conclusion is a major part of the source of the problem.
