Egypt's Islamist Freedom and Justice Party: Egypt will no longer tolerate attacks on Palestinians
Egypt's Islamist Freedom and Justice Party, formerly headed by President Mohamed Morsi, said on Wednesday Egypt would no longer stand by as Israel attacked Palestinians after air strikes killed a Hamas leader. The FJP, the political arm of the powerful Muslim Brotherhood movement, said Israeli air strikes that killed top militant Ahmed al-Jaabari in Gaza earlier on Wednesday required "swift Arab and international action to stop the massacres."

The party, which fielded Mohamed Morsi in a June election to replace toppled president Hosni Mubarak, said Israel "must take into account the changes in the Arab region and especially Egypt."

Egypt "will not allow the Palestinians to be subjected to Israeli aggression, as in the past," the party statement said.

Morsi, a vociferous supporter of the Palestinians before his election, had been expected to open up to the blockaded Gaza Strip bordering Egypt, but his government has backed off from his pledges.

#5  Israel should capture or build some of the same rockets and send a team into Gaza to fire them at Egypt next time there is any kind of row between Egypt and the Pals.

#4  Hasn't it always been that way with the Islamic world (and Europe and the UN...) Rambler. Israel is supposed to take hit after hit after hit - murder after murder... but just once strike back and suddenly it's all Israel's fault!

#3  So in other words, Egypt has no problem with Hamas shooting hundreds of unguided rockets at Israeli civilians. Israel should not fight back.

#2  They will all call a cease fire or a US intervention when they get into tactical deep sh*t. I hope Bibi ignores the US this time for Israel's survival's sake.

#1  They seethed and bleated and then ran for cover under Hillary's protective shirt.
Egypt meanwhile contacted US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton during her Australian visit to ask the United States to intervene in the Gaza bloodbath.
