Camp David accord nor "sacred" says Egyptian PM

In other words, if we decide we want to ignore it, or abrogate it, or arbitrarily change it, or dismiss it we can, and will, and it will be for the good of all, except you Jews.

Thanks for that clarification, your Islamic sensibilities are noted.

The Camp David accords have been the primary peace buffer between Egypt and Israel, mow that it has been reduced to something that can be changed at a whim, Israel is less safe from attack today than it was yesterday.

Islam will make any excuse, or rational to be able to maintain and promulgate the victim status, and by discarding the accords they can use any excuse to justify their decision, including the victimization they have conveniently set up.

Egyptian PM: Peace deal with Israel not sacred  

CAIRO - Egypt's Prime Minister Essam Sharaf said a peace deal with Israel was not "sacred" and could be changed for the benefit of peace or the region.

His comments, made in an interview with a Turkish television channel and broadcast on state television, were the strongest yet by the new government which took over after president Hosni Mubarak was overthrown in February.

"The Camp David agreement is not a sacred thing and is always open to discussion with what would benefit the region and the case of fair peace ... and we could make a change if needed," he said in the interview.

Politics professor Mustapha al-Sayyid said Sharaf's comments appeared to be aimed more at boosting Egyptian security on the border with Israel, which under the 1979 treaty is subject to limitations, rather than abrogating it altogether.

"It has been well demonstrated that the size of Egyptian forces in this area is not sufficient to meet threats to security. The number of troops should be increased and equipment improved," he said.

"I don't think any Egyptian political forces are calling for abrogation of the treaty or even ending diplomatic relations."

Tensions between Egypt and Israel, which have been rising since Mubarak was overthrown, flared after a cross-border attack last month.

Cairo accused Israeli forces of shooting dead five Egyptian security guards during gun battles with Palestinian militants who Israel says had earlier ambushed and killed eight Israelis.

Egyptian protesters stormed the Israeli embassy last Friday in anger at Israel for the border killings.

Asked about Sharaf's comments, an Israeli spokesman said Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had recently voiced his commitment to the treaty on at least two occasions.
"In both places he stressed the importance of maintaining the peace treaty with Egypt, and that the peace treaty is an anchor for regional stability..."
