Egypt attacks Iran and allies in Arab world
29-Jan-2009 (3 comments)

CAIRO (Reuters) - Egypt aired its grievances against Iran, the Palestinian Islamist movement Hamas and the Lebanese Shi'ite group Hezbollah, saying they worked together in the fighting over Gaza to provoke conflict in the Middle East. Egypt criticized Hamas for what he called its coup against the forces of the Palestinian Authority in the Gaza Strip in 2007.

The man is on CIA Payroll, what do you think he is going to say?

The Mullahs are criminals but he is not much better himself.

Without CIA hand out and security around him, he would have been gone the Saddat way by now.

Egypt is trying to spin its political
failures on all accounts. Egypt has put itself in an awkward position
by regurgitating what the Israelis like to hear about Iran, Hamas and
the Hezb. Egypt may be big, but it is also poor and its economic
advantages are non-existent without regular US hand-outs. Egypt has
realized its culpability and powerlessness in stopping Israel from
committing the most heineous war crimes in Gaza so it is running for cover. The entire
Arab/Muslim world is blaming Egypt and S. Arabia for inaction and even conspiring with Israel to commit war crimes in Gaza, therefore Egyptian functionaries' finger pointing at Iran and the Hezb is merely Egypt's shameless attempt to divert
attention from its own culpability in allowing Gaza civilians to be
massacred by the Israelis. The center of gravity in the ME does not involve Egypt any
longer. The prosperous Qatar, UAE, Turkey and Iran are the main players
now - call that "the new Middle East". Mr. Egyptian and his fossilized boss need to learn to deal with
this reality.

By the way, why is Iran's role to advise Hezbollah against opening
a "second front" in Northern Israel being ignored by Israel and the
"moderate Arabs"? Why do you think Israel's northern borders stayed
"quiet"? Who made that happen? What was the role of Iranian diplomats including Larijani
there? I'm just asking.
