9. Oh Good! We get the Sinai Back!
M. Duvduvani ,   Yokneam, Israel   (04.26.11)
I'm happy to hear Sharm el Sheikh will be Israeli again. Now I can go snorkeling in the Sinai without having to wait at the damn passport control in Eilat!
10. "...most Egyptian view the Israelis poorly, largely...
eporue ,   europe   (04.26.11)
...because of perceptions that they mistreat the Palestinians..." if you had an agreement on the borders, and end the occupation, the egyptians would like you most of all their neighbours...
11. what a pathetic clueless comment..pfff..
Alan   (04.26.11)
12. I guess they have a new bridge in Cairo to name after
tom ,   tel aviv   (04.26.11)
another "victory" over Israel. What is wrong with the Arab genes, Salma?
13. If you think Israel mistreats Palestinians...
deebo_ ,   Holon, Israel   (04.26.11)
You're welcome to take them in. But it's funny how many Israeli Arabs who choose to be productive members of society are actually doing quite well here.
14. Treaties should be written on toilet paper.
Terry ,   Eilat - Israel   (04.26.11)
That way, once we sign them, they'll still be good for something.
15. Lol Salma @ #1
Eddie Costa   (04.26.11)
I guess you have been waiting the entire weekend for the column to open up. I hope you went to church and ask for forgiveness for yourself and your people.
16. fad egypt at 4
smokey   (04.26.11)
I feel sorry for you fad. So why the hell don't you all move away to the desert and start anew. I would love to be given a chance like that!
17. Conclusion
Israel Israeli ,   Tel Aviv   (04.26.11)
As always, the Zionists are right and the Left are wrong. In exchange for a piece of paper, Israel surrendered something real: her territory, ports, beaches and oil to Egyptian occupation. A few years on it turns out the paper is meaningless.
18. Egyptians, smart people ? really ?
Avenger ,   Armageddon   (04.26.11)
More than 40% of the Egyptian population is illiterate... I would hardly call that a "smart" people.... Egyptians, like most Arabs, are ignorants and brainwashed by their corrupt and inefficient governments... Ah, can always blame your stupidity on Israel...
19. Stupid Egyptians need years of prosperity to learn war sucks
Brian Cohen ,   Judean Peoples Front   (04.26.11)
Just great to know that the Egyptians are as brainwashed an stupid as Salma. War, death and destruction is what they want? How pathetically stupid and immoral that Salma is urging them on. The Arabs don't just need to be released from the past century of living under brutal dictatorships, they need to work on themselves first and improve their lot. Waging war against Israel is the loser's road to death and destruction and will open the door to more dictatorships. Smarten up, Salma. Don't bring war and death to the Egyptians just because you Palestinians can't make peace with yourselves.
20. #10, There is NO OCCUPATION...!!!!
Chris Rettenmoser ,   Bayerisch Gmain Germ   (04.26.11)
Do you feel well ? The Egyptians are still fans of Usama bin Laden...get is as simple as that...!!!!
21. Egyptians Still Don't Get It...
Abdel Karim Salim ,   Jerusalem   (04.26.11)
It seems Egyptians still don't get it that everything is relative.Egyptians would be in a far worse situation if Egypt remained in a state of active war with Israel.The young Egyptian generation of today seems to have a shallow understanding of the four catastrophic defeats Egypt suffered in four wars with Israel : 1948,1956,1967,and the 1968-1970 war of attrition.Besides, the new generation in Egypt must know that Egypt was able to get back Sinai Peninsula only-and only perfectly-by way of negotiations with Israel,and not by war.Egyptians must get accustomed to accept Israel's existence next to them.As for the Palestinians,while there is indeed a palestinian problem,especially the refugees and statehood,the palestinian plight is most often tremendously exaggerated and overblown by arab and western media.Enough to remind Palestinians of the grave injustice the arab regimes inflicted on them ! Young Egyptians certainly need to be educated objectively much more about the Israeli-Arab conflict while the Palestinians themselves have to remember who killed both Juliano and Vittorio !
22. They may be.
Mike Carmel ,   Rishon le Zion   (04.26.11)
They may be anti-peace treaty but that doesn't necessarily mean that they are pro-war. I sincerely doubt that they are.
23. Excellent article # 21
Rebecca. ,   Israel.   (04.26.11)
You are a man of vision.
24. @1 warmonger
25. Is Egypt asking for a new spanking?
Susya Bar Dror ,   IL   (04.26.11)
It seems so. The peace treaty with Israel was very good for Egypt. For both it resulted in a "no war" period which was ok for both. Only a sick mind is hoping for a new war.
26. A Lost Cause
Bill Foonman ,   Jacksonville, USA   (04.26.11)
Like the other Arab countries, Egypt will be a poster child for violence, ignorance and poverty while a democratic Israel will continue to invent, innovate and create. Israel has little or nothing to learn from Egypt, Syria, Libya or the other dysfunctional Middle East countries.
Atilla Karagözoğlu   (04.26.11)
why not.
28. 99% of Israelis wonder what "peace" are
jason white ,   afula, israel   (04.26.11)
the gyps talking about?
29. There is a new reality
Cairo Street ,   Egypt   (04.26.11)
Egypt will soon be in an alliance with turkey and iran. There is no room for a relationship with israel.
30. Pro-Democracy
IrisWall ,   South Africa   (04.26.11)
What Democracy. Does not exist in any Muslim country. Never has. Never will. Sharia Law forbids it. Democracy means freedom to choose any religion, to say anything you want, to vote for anyone you want, to have equal rights (all) for females, sexuality freedom, freedom of speech, freedom of the press, Parliamentarian rule by people voted by the people for the people, freedom from bribery and corruption. Only exists in Israel. No Muslim will ever have this unless they move to America or another Western democratic country. You are doomed.
