The Jerusalem Post reports: Egypt threatens Abbas.
Egypt threatened to withdraw its support for the Palestinian Authority if the PA did not act to control the rampant anarchy in the Gaza Strip, according to a report in the London Arab newspaper Al Quds.The Palestinians are such charming people. They can't even get along with their friends. What chance is there that they can make peace with their enemies.
The report claimed that following the incident at the Rafah border crossing in which two Egyptian soldiers were killed, Egyptian authorities delivered the threat to PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas as part of a specially delivered message.
Egypt also threatened to withdraw its support for the peace process if the PA did not take the proper steps to restore order to Gaza.
Israel Radio reported that there were no other confirmations of the account.
I think this also reinforces the idea that Sharon's return of Gaza was a truly brilliant plan. The Palistinians are making fools of themselves and enemies of their friends. As I said. Good news from the Middle East.
