Egypt Threatens To End Peace Treaty With Israel

Egyptian authorities are threatening to void the decades-old peace treaty with Israel over the Jewish nation’s offensive against Hamas terrorists. For over 40 years, the Middle Eastern nation respected Israel’s right to defend itself against repeated attacks from its neighbors.

But that period of peace may come to an end.

The treaty signed at Camp David in 1978 by Egyptian President Anwar Sadat and Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin under the proud eye of U.S. President Jimmy Carter may soon be relegated to history.

Current Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu vowed to pursue Hamas terrorists into the Gazan city of Rafah. The densely packed area borders Egypt, and officials there are concerned over the prospect of hundreds of thousands of refugees flooding in.

Full diplomatic relations are in jeopardy if Egyptian officials carry through with their threat.

The Associated Press confirmed on Sunday that the Arab nation may nullify the agreement if Israeli forces pursue terrorist targets in Rafah.

This is despite Netanyahu declaring that it is the site of the last Hamas stronghold after the Palestinian group was forced away from Israel’s southern border.

The current offensive only began when 1,200 Israeli citizens were massacred and hundreds were taken hostage on Oct. 7. Despite this, Palestinians are parading themselves as victims of a “genocide.”

As for Gaza residents, a survey by the prominent Palestinian Center for Policy Survey and Research uncovered the prevailing attitude. Nearly three out of four respondents asserted the Oct. 7 attack on Israel was justified.

Research determined that 72% believe the invasion and kidnappings were “correct.” Only 22% of respondents deemed it “incorrect” and the remainder were undecided or did not answer.

Support for Hamas after the terror attacks increased in Gaza and more than tripled in the West Bank. This came as Israel’s retaliation sparked deadly clashes between Jewish forces and Palestinians.

Respondents further cited growing international support for their cause despite the well-documented atrocities carried out by Hamas.

A scant 11% of those surveyed expressed support for Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas. A 2007 split with Hamas led to the terrorist faction controlling Gaza with the exception of some areas of the West Bank, which remain somewhat governed by PA.
