Details of Egyptian Ceasefire Proposal

Egypt is trying to pull a fast one Israel to help itself to regain prominence.

Egypt begins its ceasefire proposal by blowing its own horn that the initiative comes from “its historical responsibility, and out of belief in the importance of achieving peace in the region, protecting the lives of innocents, and ending the bloodshed.”

Talk about chutzpah. That is like a white supremacist trying to preach equality. How many people did the Mubarak, Muslim Brotherhood and al-Sisi people kill during protests against their regimes. Was it 2,000 or 3,000?

“Egypt calls upon Israel and all of the Palestinian factions to enact an immediate ceasefire, due to the fact that escalation and mutual violence, and the victims that will result, will not be in the interest of either party.”

Wait a minute, Egypt. It is not in the t interest of the civilized world that the Hamas terrorist infrastructure be destroyed?

The al-Sisi regime’s proposal first demands, “Israel shall cease all hostilities against the Gaza Strip via land, sea, and air, and shall commit to refrain from conducting any ground raids against Gaza and targeting civilians.”

Is the maritime blockade against the smuggling of terrorists and weapons into Gaza a “hostility”? Does this proposal mean that Israel must open the seas for Iran to send even more advanced weapons to Gaza?

Egypt demands from Hamas, “All Palestinian factions in Gaza shall cease all hostilities from the Gaza Strip against Israel via land, sea, air, and underground, and shall commit to refrain from firing all types of rockets, and from attacks on the borders or targeting civilians.

“Crossings shall be opened and the passage of persons and goods through border crossings shall be facilitated once the security situation becomes stable on the ground.”

What does “stable” mean? A ceasefire that lasts two hours? Or two days? Or maybe even two weeks?

Does “stable “mean that Gaza terrorists attacked Israel “only” with one or two Kassam rockets?

“ Other issues, including security issues shall be discussed with the two sides.

“Method of implementation of the initiative:

“ It has been decided to initiate implementation of the de-escalation agreements at — : — hours (GMT) on — / 7 / 2014, pending the implementation of a full ceasefire within twelve hours of the announcement of the Egyptian initiative and its unconditional acceptance by both sides.”

Apparently, the blanks means that neither Hamas nor Israel is ready to sign as of yet. Making the proposal public is intended to pressure both sides to do so.

“ High-level delegations from both the Israeli government and the Palestinian factions shall be hosted in Cairo within 48 hours of the initiation of the initiative’s implementation, in order to conclude talks for the consolidation of the ceasefire and resume confidence-building measures between the two sides; talks shall be held with each of the two sides separately (in accordance with the agreements for the consolidation of de-escalation in Cairo in 2012).”

In other words, the “peace process” now will involve Hamas and Israel, with Cairo brokering the talks. Next step is U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry’s getting on stage again and playing out another round of peace talks, with Hamas and Fatah sitting as peace partners for Israel.

  1. I think any agreement for “ceasefire” MUST GO TO THE PEOPLE for decision. The People are the ones who suffer and need to have a say in their own future – IMHO!!!

  2. God will take care of Israel

  3. Israel, I am sure, is smarter then to believe there is not a political motive behind it.

  4. Forget it, end the constant assault on Israel, wipe Hamas out & take back Gaza. Egypt needs to take care of it’s own business, their country is a mess. Obama the traitor to Israel needs to shut up. He turned against Israel & Thanks to him America’s paying the price.

  5. Jay Grosflam says:

    Shirley – do you any facts to back up your comment?

  6. Yeah, Hamas should surrender or Israel gets to bomb them off the face of the earth!

  7. Masume Tan says:

    America is paying the prize agains it

  8. Masume Tan says:

    Nabil arif gaza never been to palistenian palistenian never had a country go.back to syria and iraq ahhaha

  9. Champ Styles says:

    —They do it like how they did in 1948 right after WWII with the odds against them.

  10. No It should be on Israel’s terms this time.

  11. Izik Izik says:

    Hey Egypt remember the Ten plagues. Nooo then go ahead and piss us off and find out. Last time didnt go well for you.

  12. The only remaining option for peace in Israel Is;redeem Gaza.wipe Hamas to dust,failure to that,kidnapping will never end&when they buy new weapons they will be testing them on u to see how they can work.U’ve Already Seen The Rockets?take Care&God Bls IDF.

  13. Believe it or not, I trust al-Sisi a LOT more than Obama/Kerry. At least, al-Sisi hates Hamas, unlike Obama/Kerry. Israel must NOT trust Egyptian motives or official U.S. promises. BE CAREFUL!
