#1 This has never been in doubt, even when Hosni ran the show, but now it's out in front
The difference is that, nowadays, most Israelis understand this.

#2 I hope that Israelis see now that returning Sinai was inane. They should get it back at the nearest opportunity. And build a moat around Gazoo, filled with great white and crocks.

#4 Come again, g(r)om?
I really don't see it that cruel to Gazooks.

#6 I dont give a damn about the Egyptian gas deal.
I think long term it will be a benefit for Israel because we will be pushed to invest in developing our local gas fields which will not be dependent on the decisions of the moslem brotherhood.
Besides, the gas line was Kaboomed 13 times up to now, so there was no regular supply anyhow.
What is really important is the realization of Israel's leaders that : A LYING ARAB REMAINS A LYING ARAB
a skunk will always smell like a skunk no matter how much perfume you spray on it. NO MORE DEALS WITH LYING ARABS. - is a lesson we have to burn into the minds of our politicians.
No matter how much land you give them all you get in the end is a temporary "Hudna".
The Egyptian peace agreement was not worth the paper it was written on ( all it bought us was some time- which was not so bad while it lasted).
Another Even more important lesson is : Dont trust anyone with your National security !
Even so called "friends" ( Bambi et al.) will lie to you if it fits their interests.
I hope Netanyahu can read what is written in big letters on the wall.
Dear P.M. Please attack Iran and don't give a damn about promises (or threats) from friends and enemies.

#7 Depending upon the reactions to the upcoming Iran action, Sinai might just end up under Israel control again.

#8 So if the Peace Treaty is over then the USA doesn't need to pay both sides?

#10 Makes me feel so good about all the foreign aid we give 'em. And with Obama in office you can bet that aid will continue whether we can afford it or not.

#11 The Arabs seem determined to accomplish the impossible - have the Greeks, Cypriots and Israelis agree to divide up the energy rights to the eastern Med. Gas, like money, is fungible. I won't be surprised if even the Jordanians or Saudis agree to supply Israel, simply by brokering the shipments from Egypt.
Now, if they were really creative, they'd agree to route the Hormuz detour pipeline from Kuwait and Qatar to Haifi. As silly as the Persian navy is, that would render it superfluous.

#12 Every collapsing state needs a #1 Enemy. It deflects blame from the rulers and gives the people something to think about besides shortages of food, power and consumer goods.
For the Arab world, if the Juice did not exist, it would be necessary to invent them.

#13 Uh, uh, so does this mean the Begin-Sadat Peace Accords is officially toast + Israel can militarily re-occupy the Sinai???
This has got "SUEZ CRISIS II: CANAL BUGALOO" for Cable written all over it.
