Sisi on Yom Kippur War: Israel a Mercedes, Egypt a SEAT
'It was clear the Mercedes would win. Who would've thought to have a Mercedes compete with a SEAT, other than real men?' the Egyptian president says at event marking 45 years to war, saying great losses Israel suffered led it to sign peace treaty.
Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi on Thursday compared the 1973 Yom Kippur War to a car race between Israel, a Mercedes, and his own country, a SEAT.

 

 

"The big differences in power did not deter Egypt or its army. It was like one driving a SEAT and the other a Mercedes," Sisi said at an event marking 45 years to what the Arab world calls the October War.

 

"Truthfully, it was clear the Mercedes would win. Who would've thought to have a Mercedes compete with a SEAT, other than real men?" he added.

He went on to say that "the outcomes of the war are a form of miracle. The losses led Israel to accept the peace treaty. There were thousands of dead, and they were not willing for it to repeat itself."

 

"If the Egyptian army succeeded in doing this in the past, it would succeed in doing it every time. Israel hasn't suffered so many losses since the October War and to this day," Sisi concluded
