Os transcribo lo que he recibido de mi proveedor de noticias:
– “The people escalating and the government appeasing [the situation]”
“But the Egyptian people are rejecting this appeasement and thousands among them are still demonstrating in front of the Israeli embassy in Cairo and demanding its closing, while the young Egyptian man who climbed up the building of the embassy, took down the Israeli flag and placed the Egyptian one instead has become a popular hero. The Egyptian people are the most hostile toward Israel and any normalization attempt with it, while the arrival of delegations from all over the country in front of the embassy to demonstrate alongside artists, writers, poets and ordinary citizens is a clear proof for that… The Egyptian popular anger is right on the mark, considering that the Israeli forces committed a double crime in Sinai, as they firstly violated the sovereignty of Egyptian soil, then killed Egyptian soldiers in cold blood in clear violation of the Camp David accords.
“For its part, the United States is extremely concerned about these tensions between its main allies in the region, because the return of the climate of war will mean the collapse of the most important US foreign policy pillar in the Middle East region. Hence, the administration quickly dispatched Assistant Secretary of State Jeffrey Feltman to Cairo and Tel Aviv to appease the situation between the two countries. Feltman is among the main engineers of American foreign policy in the Arab region, and his efforts are always focused on the protection of Israel and the fighting of its enemies in the region, namely the Lebanese Hezbollah and the Palestinian Islamic resistance factions such as Hamas and the Islamic Jihad, and the support of the sides falling under the headline of “moderation,” particularly the Lebanese parties.
“It is likely that Feltman’s efforts to contain the crisis will be successful and that he will manage to convince the Egyptian authorities to accept the Israeli “sorrow” and not the “apology,” because these authorities do not want any escalation with the Israelis during the transitional phase currently witnessed in the country. Mr. Muhammad Kamel Amr, the Egyptian foreign minister, said he will not withdraw the Egyptian ambassador from Tel Aviv because his government wants him to stay there for the time being. The non-withdrawal of the Egyptian ambassador by a government which emerged from the womb of Tahrir Square, the stronghold of the Egyptian revolution, in protest against the martyrdom of Egyptian soldiers… is condemned and difficult to understand, considering that the government of deposed President Hosni Mubarak withdrew its ambassador twice, in protest against the attack on South Lebanon and during the invasion of the Gaza Strip.
“The Egyptian government must not succumb to the American blackmail and insist on a clear Israeli apology, just as it was and is still being done by the Turkish government. This is the government of the revolution and it must rise to the level of the positions and aspirations of the people who detonated this revolution and toppled a regime that was collaborating with Israel.” – Al-Quds al-Arabi, United Kingdom
USA siempre con paños calientes para que no se le descontrole el personal, pero en una situación de crisis mayor, apoyará a Israel, no importa cual sea la fechoría que hayan cometido. Los egipcios tienen demasiado trabajo urgente, demasiados frentes internos y externos. A ver si se puede comprobar con hechos, de una vez, con que «amigos» puede realmente contar.
