Skip to comments.Egypt: Jerusalem bill an obstacle to peace
Posted on 01/03/2018 11:17:10 PM PST by Eleutheria5
Egypt on Wednesday blasted the approval of the United Jerusalem Bill in the Knesset earlier this week.
The bill, which the Knesset approved in its second and third readings on Monday night, stipulates that a majority of 80 Knesset members will be required to change the status of Jerusalem or for any transfer of territories from the capital within the framework of a future diplomatic agreement.
Ahmed Abu Zeid, a spokesman for Egypts Foreign Ministry, said in a statement on the Foreign Ministrys website that the law is in contravention of UN resolutions related to the status of the City of Jerusalem as being under occupation, and therefore the inadmissibility of any actions that would change the status quo in the city.
Abu Zeid added that the law represents an obstacle to the future of the peace process, and achieving a just settlement of the Palestinian question, as well as jeopardizing the legal status of the City of Jerusalem, as it is considered to be one of the final-status issues that will be resolved through negotiations between the concerned parties.

You know, maybe we quit sending rice to your ports next Wednesday until you change your mind...
No need for America to weigh in on a bill in our Knesset. We’ll just stop buying Nile perch.
If Egypt were really so interested in promoting peace it could take back its colonialists from Gaza
Ah but, no wheat at port, which we subsidize and the riots begin anew.
Who dies in the aftermath?
Take the whole strip and put a stop to the rockets, and to Hamas hegemony.
As you wish. No need, but there’s no need to concern yourself with feeding them, either. Thanks to Obama, Russia now owns them. Let Putin play the part of Joseph.
Yes. And then do the same to hezballah. !!!!!!!!!
More people need wheat than want Stoli....
Stoli’s made from wheat. It’s wheat concentrate. And if Muslims have a problem, let them make non-alcohol Stoli, just like they have in Israel with beer.
