Pre – WW3 Update: Egypt condemns Israel attacks on Gaza, demands halt
(Reuters) – Egypt’s foreign ministry condemned on Wednesday a series of Israeli strikes that killed a Hamas top military commander in the Gaza Strip and called for an immediate halt to the attacks.
The attacks came despite signs that Egypt had managed to broker a truce between Israel and Palestinian militants after a five-day surge in violence which saw more than 100 missiles fired out of Gaza and repeated Israeli strikes on the enclave.
Islamist Hamas said Ahmed Al-Jaabari, who ran the organization’s armed wing Izz el-Deen Al-Qassam, was killed along with a passenger when their car was targeted by an Israeli missile. A hospital spokesman in Gaza said so far that four were killed and 10 people had been wounded.
“Foreign Minister Mohamed Kamel Amr condemned the series of air strikes that Israel is currently conducting against Gaza Strip and which led to the killing of Ahmed Al-Jaabari,” said the statement released by Egypt’s foreign ministry.
“He called on Israel to stop its strikes on Gaza Strip immediately,” the statement said adding that any further escalation from Israel “could have negative repercussions on the security and stability of the region”.
The statement said the Egyptian minister considered the “Israeli escalation to be very dangerous”.
Egypt’s new Islamist President Mohamed Mursi who hails from the FJP, the political wing of Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood group, has since his election last June strengthened the relationship between Egypt and Hamas, the political front of the Palestinian Muslim Brotherhood.
The FJP issued a similar condemnation statement.
“The Freedom and Justice Party stresses its full condemnation to the Israeli assignation operation against Al-Qassam leader Ahmed Al-Jaabari,” a FJP statement said calling for a quick Arab and international reaction.
“Israel’s return to the policy of assignation of leaders from the Palestinian struggle groups shows that the Israeli occupation wants to drag the region towards instability,” the FJP statement added.
“But the occupying state has to understand that the changes the Arab region, and especially Egypt, have witnessed will not permit that the Palestinian people be put under the hold of the Israeli offence in the same way as the past.”
Some Arab states, including Egypt, have undergone changes that have seen a strong rise of Islamist leaders after popular uprisings that ousted authoritarian rulers.
I see that the world’s usual shit- disturbers/peace haters are at it again, my isn’t the timing simply amazing? No sooner did the US re-elect its current and future Communist leader,Obama, than these thieves of Palestinian land are now attacking the Gaza region.
The “bullies” simply want to drag the world into a major war, I have outlined their tactics,and will continue to do so, nothing original here. This Faux Chosen bunch have the worlds 4th most powerful military, hundreds of nuclear weapons…murder Palestinians (even children) daily, yet want sympathy because their victims may retaliate ?
It appears their tactics are to draw the Arab world into a conflict as the Arabs will be no longer turn a blind eye to their Palestinian brethrens plight, or will read in that they will be next. This may also mask an invasion of Syria, which they desperately want to attack.
NOTE: As one can see that at the best of times I am overwhelmed with both new info and old posts I have drafted and polishing up.
One the rumours out there is another US General, based in the Middle East was called back because the US Military was in Mutiny mode against the current US administration…The tally so far is (3) U.S. Generals have been removed / demoted…
If one looks on a map….if Syria goes down, then the Bankster have Syria and Iraq….which leaves Iran as perhaps THE last country without a “Rothschilds Central Bank” in the region. That’s what this is all about…forget the BS about “threats of attack”..its the Banksters proxies that are doing the attacking.
This will be an ugly conflict that the US will be dragged into again….the match has been lit into what was set up to be a volatile situation.
