Arab Spring… Egyptian Lower House of Parliament Approves Text Declaring Israel the Number One Enemy
On February 11, 2011, Barack Obama welcomed Egypt’s transition of power following the resignation of American ally Hosni Mubarak. Obama told reporters,
“The people of Egypt have spoken. Their voices have been heard. And Egypt will never be the same.”
He was right. Egypt will never be the same.
Today the Egyptian lower house of parliament unanimously approved a text declaring Israel the number one enemy.
Press TV reported:
The lower house of the Egyptian parliament has unanimously approved a text declaring that Israel is the number one enemy of Egypt and calling for the expulsion of the Israeli ambassador and a halt to gas exports to Israel.
On Monday, Egyptian MPs voted by a show of hands on the text of a report, which was compiled by the Arab Affairs Committee of the People’s Assembly (lower house of parliament).
“Revolutionary Egypt will never be a friend, partner or ally of the Zionist entity, which we consider to be the number one enemy of Egypt and the Arab nation,” the report declared, adding, “It will deal with that entity as an enemy, and the Egyptian government is hereby called upon to review all its relations and accords with that enemy.”
Another day, another disaster.
