Skip to comments.Arab leaders, viewing Hamas as worse than Israel, stay silent

CAIRO: Battling Palestinian militants in Gaza two years ago, Israel found itself pressed from all sides by unfriendly Arab neighbors to end the fighting.
Not this time.
After the military ouster of the Islamist government in Cairo last year, Egypt has led a new coalition of Arab states including Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Jordan that has effectively lined up with Israel in its fight against Hamas, the Islamist movement that controls the Gaza Strip. That, in turn, may have contributed to the failure of the antagonists to reach a negotiated ceasefire even after more than three weeks of bloodshed.
"The Arab states' loathing and fear of political Islam is so strong that it outweighs their allergy to Benjamin Netanyahu," the prime minister of Israel, said Aaron David Miller, a scholar at the Wilson Center in Washington and a former Middle East negotiator under several presidents. "I have never seen a situation like it, where you have so many Arab states acquiescing in the death and destruction in Gaza and the pummeling of Hamas. The silence is deafening."
Although Egypt is traditionally the key go-between in any talks with Hamas deemed a terrorist group by the US and Israel the government in Cairo this time surprised Hamas by publicly proposing a ceasefire agreement that met most of Israel's demands and none from the Palestinian group. Hamas was tarred as intransigent when it immediately rejected it, and Cairo has continued to insist that its proposal remains the starting point for any further discussions.
But as commentators sympathetic to the Palestinians slammed the proposal as a ruse to embarrass Hamas, Egypt's Arab allies praised it....

Exactly. Perhaps this regime might check with people close to the action before reflexively blaming and condemning Israel. Oh, wait... this regime’s charter is aligned with HAMAS.
Someone ought to, but I don't think they are interested in reality. They have their own way of looking at the world, facts be damned.
The only ones left supporting Hamas are liberals and the Obama admin.
Speaking of Eqypt, has anyone mentioned what this war would be like if Morsi/Muslim Brotherhood(Obama backed) had stayed in power?
They would have been a big supporter and supplier for Hamas.
I have a few foaming at mouth Israel hater friends. I remind them that Gaza is also bordered by Egypt. Their eyes glaze over. Confuses them but, doesn’t penetrate their hatred.
obammy is a sunni mooselimb.
So is ms jarret.
ya gots to go with your heart and the crazies is where these two are at.
Well, by Israel, that is.
They know they can’t count on Obama. I was under the impression that UAE was aligned with Qatar. Well we know Qatar is aligned with Iran, and it seems that nobody else wanta Irans brand of Radical Islam except Obama.

Policy Memo: A Good Deal Is Better Than No Deal (Is this a threat?)
NIA Council ^ 7/17/14
Washington, DC Failure to reach a nuclear deal with Iran will not lead to a continuation of the current status quo, but rather a deterioration of the situation with severe military, economic and security consequences.
This is the conclusion of a new NIAC Policy Memo published today analyzing the consequences of a diplomatic failure between the U.S. and Iran.
Hamas has been very clear that their objective is to destroy Israel, and their actions speak for themselves.
The fact that so many fail to see Hamas as a terrorist organization, shows the extent of that “poor” groups state of the art PR capabilitites. They have well connected benefactors, as do the other islamic terrorists. They may have a rag tag looking army of dissenfranchised Arabs, but they are bought and paid for by world leaders.
They all happen to be in the narco and human trafficking trade, and EVERY Wall Street bank is laundering that money.
Meanwhile, the toll of potential Israeli citizen deaths from Hamas rockets continues to rise. The toll recently passed the 100,000 mark and now stands at 104,120.
Had the thousands of Hamas rockets struck the densely populated Israeli targets the death toll would have been 104,120. The Iron dome and poor aim prevented the genocidal scale death toll.

What do Arab leaders know. Ask America's leader. Or Iran's. Or Turkey's. Or ask Nancy Pelosi, she'll explain Hamas is a humanitarian organization
Check out the Comments section of the Times of India story. A lot of readers support Israel and see Islam as the problem.
That is another big change from the past - the Indian Government, and a lot of Indian public opinion supports Israel.
India has one of the world’s largest navies, and is not that far from the Persian Gulf or Red Sea - with huge markets, resources and potential for technological cooperation.
The new Prime Minister of India (Narendra Modi, who came to power in May), is the most pro-Israeli ever. Perhaps no other country has suffered more from Islamic aggression than India has over its history, so fighting Islamic terrorists resonates there (they have soldiers with assault rifles guarding the metro train stations in New Delhi because of Pakistani terror attacks).
Israeli/Indian relations seem poised to take off in the future. In the past, they were vocal critics of Israel as a leader of the “non-aligned” movement and pandering to domestic Muslim communities, but now there is no political pressure from India either - even some moral support.
