Egypt and Israel have had a tentative peace for thirty years. It has mostly worked. Now as the world, including the U.S. moves to isolate Israel, Egypt is emboldened and joins the fray in a very big way. Egyptian men married to Jews of Jewish descent will be stripped of their citizenship. I feel a distinct touch of Hitler’s hand, here.
Some 30,000 Egyptian men are married to Jewish women. About 10 percent of the 30,000 are Arab Jews, who are not included in this latest legal dictum. Egyptian men married to Israeli women will lose their Egyptian citizenship. Their children will not be allowed to serve in the Egyptian military. Does anyone think the discrimination will stop here?
Now that the U.S. has signed the United Nation’s Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), and singled out Israel to rid their nuclear arsenal, Barack Obama signaled Islamic nations that he is, indeed, on their side. Obama has paved the way for the elimination of Israel.
The language of the NPT calls on Israel to sign the Treaty. It does not call for other nuclear nations, India, Pakistan, and North Korea to de-nuke, or to sign.
Take a look at the map above. Israel’s borders are a nightmare to defend. The enemy is everywhere. With Gaza and with the Golan Heights, defense becomes easier for Israelis.
Today, Egypt is embolden, and this move to wipe out the citizenship married to Jewish women is a terrible tolling bell. Without the support of the U.S. for Israel, the entire Middle East will be feeling their
Wheaties pita and hummus.
In May 1948, eleven minutes after the Unites States recognized the State of Israel, neighboring nations, including Egypt, invaded the new sovereign nation. By July 1949, Egypt had taken control of Gaza from the “proposed Palestinian state.” By Fall 1949, Jordan controlled Gaza.
In 1956, Israel has Gaza again, but again gives it up.
In Spring 1967, some 500,000 troops, including Egypt, surrounded the tiny piece of land know as Israel. Israel’s water was cut off. In May, Egypt set up a sea blockade of Israeli ships.
Egypt, Syria, Iraq, Jordan and Saudi Arabia formed a “defense pact.” Egyptian President Nasser said “Our basic objective will be the destruction if Israel.
In June 1967, Israel found it necessary to defend their homeland from its neighboring armies of 500,000.
After a three days of fierce fighting, especially in and around Jerusalem, Israeli forces defeated the Jordanians and gained control of all of Jerusalem as well as the West Bank, the historical heartland of the Jewish people known to Israelis as Judea and Samaria. Following an air attack by the Syrians on the first day of the war, Israel dealt a shattering blow to the Syrian air force. …on fifth day of the war, the Israelis mustered enough forces to remove the Syrian threat from the Golan Heights. This difficult operation was completed the following day, bringing the active phase of the war to a close.
In return for peace with Egypt, Israel returned the Sinai, but once again has control of Gaza (which The League of Nations mandated). Israel stayed in Gaza this time.
