Skip to comments.Movement that Toppled Morsi Targets Peace Deal with Israel (looking to revoke peace treaty)
Posted on 08/17/2013 8:23:14 PM PDT by Olog-hai
Tamarod, the Egyptian movement which led the opposition to ousted President Mohammed Morsi, apparently now has a new target: the peace treaty with Israel.
Egyptian media reported on Saturday that Tamarod, which amassed 22 signatures to a petition demanding Morsis departure before the army ousted him in July, is now collecting signatures to a new initiative calling to cancel the peace treaty signed between Egyptian President Anwar Sadat and Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin in 1979.
Tamarods latest initiative, according to the reports, comes in the wake of what they called the unacceptable U.S. interference in Egypts political affairs. The members of the group are demanding that the Israel-Egypt treaty be put to a referendum.

Ah well, Aswan Dam was nice while it lasted.
As if Morsi would have done any differently.
Well, Bill Clinton targeted Serbian bridges and power plants (without benefit of a declaration war)
No reason why a dam sho0uld be off limits.
obbbammma effs things up again.
Egypt is cruising for a population reduction.
No reason at all.
Morsi was just as ready to scrap that treaty. Of course, Tamarod (which most people seem to not have paid attention to) accused Morsi of being the ally of the USA and Israel instead, using that as a reason for his ouster.
If Israel is forced by war to nuke the Aswan dam it will be like flushing a toilet
Now that sounds like an underwhelming groundswell of opposition to anything. Amassed 22 signatures? AMASSED?????
It should be the express policy of the United States government to do everything possible, overtly and covertly, to encourage Arab on Arab violence. We could all sleep a little better.
I don’t hear the liberals crediting Obama’s “Cairo speech” much anymore for what is going on over there like they did when Mubarak was ousted.
“An Israeli official said Thursday that Israeli cabinet currently opts for staying “on the sideline as far as Cairo goes this is an internal Egyptian matter.”
But we have to stick our noses in and eff everything up. obbbammmer helped push Mubarak out. Now he’s effing things up again. We never learn. Never.
It’s enough for an autocratic movement.
Those who ignore history are doomed to repeat it.
Can they survive by going back to the pre-1978 agreements..sure for awhile..
They are coming to a decidedly table stacked against them to preserve the foot in the door so to speak. I have heard the rumor the younger generation of Israeli's is ready to fight I don't really believe it.
Much like the USA I think there is a real sense in the government there that they need to at best preserve what they have got or risk losing it all (or at least untold casualties) to the idealism of the folks who can be worn down by war...
The mostly secular army has been very pragmatic since Sadat was in power. Why would they now jeopardize the big cash cow now. As bad as it is now in our country the chance of getting to the truth is much worse from that part of the world. As I read in an earlier post, when Muslim Arabs are killing the like, it’s a positive.
A nuke will destroy the dam, but shouldn't kill all that many people, given that it's hundreds of miles away from Egypt's major population centers. The dam busters killed 1600 people while breaching the Ruhr River valley dams. The destruction of Aswan dam with JDAM's would mainly turn out the lights in Egypt, which wouldn't be such a bad thing in a wartime situation. Ultimately, any war started by Egypt should result in Israel's permanent annexation of the Sinai.
Reads like ‘blackmail’ to me. IF our dear leader stops sending the checks then the whole system is coming down?
BenL “Well, Bill Clinton targeted Serbian bridges and power plants... No reason why a dam (Aswan Dam) sho0uld be off limits.”
1st, Bill is an assho, done Monika does not make doin Monika OK.
2nd, Hundreds of thousands of folks, good, bad, kids, Kopts Mus, Christ... No nuke required, can do it with a drone... Jus start blastin, to cool. Follow on bennies >> Plague, famine, rot rats more rot...
Good way to scrounge a real disaster from run of the mill mus corruption.
Nope its one in a half billion mostly for military hardware. 99.99999998% of the Egyptian population receives absolutely NO benefit from our aid..it has no leverage at all with anyone who could remotely be called the average Egyptian..
The threat is to US for nonpayment of promised money. AND the methodology to be used is a referendum meaning a vote on the 'peace deal' made around 40 years ago. The referendum most likely is not going to say the US has cut our military funding. See not even like minded liberals in purchasing peace deals keep their word.
The US aid has zero influence on events there. The political argument folks here make also have zero influence on anyone there.
So this 'report' is a hoax? Some 'group' in Egypt is NOT threatening US via Israel? I do not know if the average Egyptian knows how much tax dollars we send them and have sent them for the past 40 some years. It certainly does appear the military does indeed have quite enormous authority in Egypt... the military would not be what it is IF it were not for our tax dollars.
Exactly. Posturing to prevent loss of US funds.
This does not make sense (then again, they're Muslims) because they support their military junta, Israel supports their military junta and it is in their best interest to keep the border with Israel quiet & friendly as they march on with their internal problems.
This would not be the first time the Arabs do that which is directly detrimental to their interests...
Liberals can’t deal with the negative blowback from their polices, it’s like it never happened and they weren’t there or suddenly have amnesia.
The groups in the street could care less...and it appears to me they will eventually win.
Israel has a problem due to events on the ground that they cannot control. I suspect they have said yes to Kerry to buy time and see what will happen.
I pray you are right...
sounds like the new guy in Egypt and Israel are fine - in constant contact - Egypt just wants all US hands on - OFF - and needs to get to the rest of mussie nests.
It just may be that Egypt and Israel will work out their own treaty - without any input from the US muzzie -
the usurper in the the WH is setting the US back decades -
Given the feigned outrage over a rodeo clown in dear leader mask, I do not have the confidence this threat has any cause for impact on our (US) modern ruling liberals. The ousting of the PhD materials scientist Morsi, has caused the greatest consternation for our dear leader and his ambassadors lord McCain and Lindsey.
I can only think of one reason for the Egyptian military to cancel the peace treaty. The peace treaty prevents them from acting on the Gaza strip. There is no love at this point with the pailis in the sinai and gaza. Just something to ponder.
“Egyptian media reported on Saturday that Tamarod, which amassed 22 signatures to a petition demanding Morsis departure before the army ousted him in July”
Amassed 22 signatures???
correct.....not a raging torrent flood just a rise in water then it receeding
Another in a series of articles posted about how evil Sisi and Tamarod are. Some decent comments on the thread though. Pinging you in case you have any time to make a comment or so.
When it rains, it pours.
Just ask Noah.
I believe the Bible (Isaiah?) says that very thing will happen.
This is the same bunch that were chanting “To Jerusalem we go, martyrs in the millions” but two years ago; those in that video were not all MB by a long shot (otherwise the MB would never have been deposedponder that), and revoking the peace treaty (take note: peace treaty) between Egypt and Israel unshackles Egypt to charge right up to Jerusalem’s door, wherein even considering allowing Egypt’s military into Gaza is suicidal for the Jewish state.
How can one even think that that treaty stops Egypt from dealing with the MB in any way, really? Revocation means the end of Egypt recognizing the state of Israel, in an instant (which is not a vindication for Carter, take note; merely a fact).
Tamarod also wants the sole piece of paper that states that they recognize the state of Israel to be consigned to the past.
If that’s all they need, then the country’s gone more authoritarian than has been previously reported.
John Bolton was right. Its not the islamic extremism the Egyptians have a problem with.
I am concerned about the inroads that the Muslim culture is making here in America.
The FX series, It’s Always Sunni in Philadelphia, seems to make it clear that the Muslim culture is here to stay.
“If Israel is forced by war to nuke the Aswan dam it will be like flushing a toilet”
Why would Israel do this? If “forced” to use nukes by war, isn’t it more likely that they would nuke Egyptian (American-made) tank formations or something that could impact a battle I presume Israel would be losing. Nuking Aswan would have no effect on a battle being fought in the Sinai or southern Israel.
Yeah, isn’t that a huge mandate? What a ridiculous “news” story.
