Egypt's prime minister met with Hamas leaders on Friday in Gaza. However, the Egyptian Cabinet chief noted that Egypt maintains the
Camp David peace accords treaty with Israel.
CNN's Reza Sayah reporting from Cairo tells Anderson "It’s impossible to say what Egypt's role is right now."
Reza says, "If you look carefully, there's not much happening beyond the rhetoric...they certainly haven't taken up arms against Israel, doesn't look like they are providing material support to Hamas."
Sr. Fellow at Stanford University's Hoover Institution, Fouad Ajami, tells Anderson "The Arab world is not really going to march to the tune of Hamas" Fouad notes, "In the end, the Egyptians have fought four wars with Israel and the harvest has been catastrophe, they don't want to go back to the past"
Egyptian borders gaza. That is a fact. Egyptians only rally to gazas help when there is a response that israel has to make agains aggression. Palestinians get aid from israel in the form of water, electric and medical aid. If the Egyptian prime minister cares so much about the Palestinian people why don't they take them in to the Egyptian union. STOP BLAIMING ALL THE PROBLEMS ON ISRAEL AND RECOGNIZE THAT IT IS ONLY DEFENDING IT SELF.
The Hamas rocket teams are to blame for causing this destruction in Gaza (again).
