Egypt Threatens Relations With Hamas Unless Rocket Attacks Stop

This would be quite something if it comes to culmination, but quite frankly, I doubt it will. Words are abundant but cheap in the Arab world. Actions, well, that’s an altogether different subject. Actions, like what Egypt are threatening, are unheard of. Guess we’ll have to wait and see, because I guarantee you this: the pali terrorist are NOT going to stop shooting at Israel.

Egypt has threatened to cut off its relations with Hamas unless the movement halts its rocket attacks on Israel, Palestinian Authority officials said Wednesday.

The officials said Egyptian Intelligence Chief Gen. Omar Suleiman sent a “tough” message to Hamas leaders, warning them against the continued rocket attacks. The message was delivered to PA Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh of Hamas by Burhan Hammad, a senior Egyptian intelligence officer based in the Gaza Strip, the officials added.

They said that Suleiman also warned that Egypt would not side with the Palestinians if Israel launched a military operation against Hamas in the Gaza Strip.

“We hope that the Hamas leaders will listen carefully to what the Egyptians are telling them,” said one official here. “Hamas must return to the period of calm so as not to give Israel an excuse to invade the Gaza Strip.”
