1. Mmm, how can they cut ties and negotiate for peace???
2. Muslim Brotherhood calls to end USA aid to Egypt
Eric ,   Tel Aviv & NY   (11.15.12)
If you look at the facts, the Muslim Brotherhood calls are to end USA aid to Egypt by ending the relationship with Israel. This presumes that their call would not negate the peace treaty.
3. Egypt
Rhonda ,   Chicago, il   (11.15.12)
Well this was predictable (withdrawal of the ambassador). To the president of the United States: stop sending my tax dollars to Egypt. Israel I stand with you. It's only 3:20 am in Chicago. I will be sending contributions into MDA, etc as soon as the Midwest office opens up.
4. No Israel ties, no US loans, period.
Mea   (11.15.12)
The MB should check it's loose tongue before the last chance for restoring fiscal security slips away forever. Cut ties with Istael and our Vongress will cut you loose forever, at our nations insistence.
5. Do it
Doodad ,   Toronto Canada   (11.15.12)
Do it please Egypt. You are doomed already.
6. If Egypt breaks treaty Israel takes back Sinai
Akiva Hamilton ,   Israel   (11.15.12)
Quid pro quo. Also it cuts off Gaza supply lines. Tunnels are useless if Israel holds Rafa. Egypt can't pay for food for its people let alone fuel for its tanks.
7. Please do it!
Cisco ,   France   (11.15.12)
A great opportunity for MB, they can justify their policy toward Israel... How convenient! Tomorrow, be ready to see the hatred flooding streets in Cairo.
8. and who needs Egypt?
9. one sided rubbish
Thomas ,   uk   (11.15.12)
the israelis need to squash hamas once and for all,rockets from gaza into israel seem to be ok,but if israel responds its wrong.
10. 100%
Deen ,   Sri Lanka   (11.15.12)
What Iran Said is 100% correct
11. provide arms
Deen ,   Sri Lanka   (11.15.12)
Egypt must provide arms to Palastine people as well should join with IRAN
12. Sadly,You are right
maxie ,   canada   (11.15.12)
13. Go Israel
Noel Boland ,   Ireland   (11.15.12)
What a stupid statement by the Islammic terrorists sorry (Egypt goverment same thing) that Israel has used excessive force against Palestinians. Are they that stupid that they think Hamas can rain rockets down and Israel will stand by and watch here is a news flash and I don't care if this is published or not. Israel has the most powerful weapon ever on there side thy everyone forgets about. The God that have the land to Abraham Isaac and Jacobs descendants forever they are his people an he will curse those that curse Israel and bless those that bless it. God bless Israel forever
14. To: No. 10 and No. 11
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (11.15.12)
Why don't you vote with your feet and go to Egypt? Volunteer. Or are you content to stay in your fourth world island "nation" and mouth off?
15. Okay. I'm all for that.
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (11.15.12)
Of course, it does constitute unilateral abrogation of the 1979 Treaty with Israel. Which means -- under the terms of the Treaty -- the Sinai reverts to Israel. The cat is out of the bag. We've always known what Morsi represents, and now he has articulated his stance. Stupid move, but I guess he didn't have a choice. Too bad. Then again, I have missed Sinai, and I am glad that it will soon be part of Israel again.
16. Will Egypt return again to Russians?
Jouko ,   Finland   (11.15.12)
It will be interesting to see what MB will decide? It seems that MB is more interested in attacking Israel than feeding the poor people of Egypt? Very strange policy!
17. Muslim Botherhood "Oxymoron"
Jonny ,   Cape Town   (11.15.12)
18. #10 and 11
Eyal ,   USA Israel   (11.15.12)
It doesn't matter what they provide the Palestinian people, they are too dumb to learn how use it. Besides, they are doomed. Soon there won't be Iran, Syria, Lebanon, and Palestinians and the Sinai will be part of Israel.
19. Think twice,if not a hundred times
Samuel ,   Israel   (11.15.12)
Are the Egyptians capable of earning their livlihood? No more American aid. How in the world are they going to survive? What can they do? besides having huge rallies against Mr. Morsi.
20. The Israeli government ceases to amaze me
Sheik Rattle & Roll ,   USA   (11.15.12)
Why does it wait to defend itself diplomatically. Israel should of called a meeting days ago at the UNSC to complain about the rockets and warn of major strikes. Now it has to defend itself diplomatically. I know most Arab governments will condemn Israel, however Israel has to take the initiative regardless of the noise they make.

Eaglebeak ,   Left Coast, USA   (11.15.12)
This article is all about Egypt. Iran wasn't even mentioned.
22. Deen # 11
Eaglebeak ,   Left Coast, USA   (11.15.12)
If they are in a hurry to get their butts kicked again they really must do as you say.

Who are you talking to?

zionist forever   (11.15.12)
Providing arms to the arabs and siding with Iran will officially make it an enemy of America and its allies who they are asking to give them alot of money right now. It also increases the likelihood of another war with Israel and that is a war Egypt cannot afford to fight especially as the days of arab coalitions attacking Israel at the same time on multiiple fronts are a thing of the past.
25. Egypt doesn't ened usa or aid what egypt needs is
steven   (11.15.12)
to destroy israel and take everything afterwards. it can be done.
26. Israel Needs Peace With Egypt, More Than Egypt ...
World Citizen ,   the world   (11.16.12)
Needs Peace With Israel. The usual blowhards and armchair generals are running their mouths again. "We'll take back Sinai ...blah, blah , blah ad neauseum." Israel will do no such thing. The last thing Bibi needs is a porous southern border with an agitated Muslim Brotherhood to go along with with a totally radicalised Palestinian population in Gaza, Hezbollah in Lebanon and a possible open rebellion on the West Bank..
27. steven 25
LION OF JUDAH ,   Jews fight like LION   (11.16.12)
Egypt will not survive without American aid. With American aid, the Egyptian cannot feed their nation, without American aid they will starve. Israel can destroy Egypt with one small bomb and I dont mean Nuclear weapon, just bomb the aswan damn, and the Egyptian will look like fish. Beware steven
28. #25 Egypt
ltrail ,   United States   (11.19.12)
Steven left out the fact that the State of Israel belongs to G-d. Egypt cannot destroy what G-d has promised to love and keep safe. Cannot be done. But Egypt: go ahead and see what happens.
29. Ties with Israel
M Ali ,   Islamabad, Pakistan   (11.20.12)
I fully agree with the demand of Muslim Brotherhood that Egypt should sever all ties with Israel. As a matter of fact all Muslim/Arab and other countries who stand for justice should do the same,at the merciless killing of civilians including women and children in Gaza. Israel should understand that on the armed might it cannot defend itself.If it was so Soviet Union would not have broken up.
