In Violation Of Peace Treaty, Egypt Ties Return Of Ambassador To Israeli Concessions


NEW YORK – In yet another violation of the Israel-Egypt peace
treaty, Egypt is refusing to return its ambassador to Israel until Israel
agrees to make more one-sided concessions to Yasir Arafat.

The Israel-Egypt peace treaty requires Egypt to maintain normal
diplomatic relations with Israel. Yet the Egyptian government withdrew its
ambassador from Israel last year, and has refused to accept the credentials
of Israel’s ambassador to Egypt, thus making it impossible for him to
function. The Israeli daily Ha’aretz reports (April 15, 2001) that “the
return of Cairo’s ambassador” to Israel “is conditioned on Israel accepting
the recent initiative proposed by Egypt and Jordan to renew talks between
Israel and the Palestinians.”

The Egyptian-Jordanian “initiative” requires Israel to withdraw the
Israeli Army from additional parts of Judea, Samaria, and Gaza; refrain
from encircling Palestinian Arab towns where terrorists are situated; and
accept all concessions offered by previous Israeli governments as the
starting point for future negotiations.

In response to Egypt’s constant violations of the Israel-Egypt
peace treaty, as well as Egypt’s publication of anti-American and
anti-Jewish incitement, and its preparations for war against Israel, the
Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) is urging the Bush administration to
suspend America’s $2.1-billion in annual aid to Egypt. The ZOA has just
released a special report, “Ten Good Reasons to Stop U.S. Aid to Egypt.”
Copies are available by calling the ZOA at 212-481-1500.

The ZOA is also establishing a new task force called SANE: Stop Aid
Now to Egypt, to educate the U.S. Congress, public, and media concerning
the reasons to halt U.S. aid to Egypt.

In another egregious violation of the Israel-Egypt peace treaty, an
Egyptian government newspaper recently revived the infamous medieval blood
libel against Jews. According to the Middle East Media Research Institute
(MEMRI), an article in the March 25, 2001, edition of the Egyptian
government newspaper Al Akhbar declared: “The Talmud, the second holiest
book for the Jews, determines that the matzohs of Atonement Day [sic] must
be kneaded with blood from a non-Jew. The preference is for the blood of
youths after raping them!!”

Referring to an article that he wrote in the same newspaper on
October 20, 2000, the author stated: “Through the Al Akhbar web site,, people around the world learned that the insane myths
of the Talmud are being implemented against the non-Jews in the world. I
called on the [Cairo] summit to take action so that the day won’t come when
big bottles will be filled with Arab blood.”
