Islamist Mob Breaks in to Israeli Embassy

From the AP:

Protesters broke into the Israeli Embassy in Cairo Friday and dumped documents out of the windows as hundreds more demonstrated outside, prompting the ambassador and his family to leave the country. The unrest was a further worsening of already deteriorating ties between Israel and post-Hosni Mubarak Egypt.

Egyptian police made no attempt to intervene during the day as crowds of hundreds tore down an embassy security wall with sledgehammers and their bare hands or after nightfall when about 30 protesters stormed into the Nile-side high-rise building where the embassy is located…

This is the end of the peace treaty – the Egyptian government either will not or cannot enforce the terms, which would include the security of the Israeli embassy in Cairo.  What form of government will finally emerge in Egypt remains unknown…but until that government does emerge and indicates its policies, no reliance can be placed on agreements made under the Sadat/Mubarak regime.  A new peace treaty will have to made – and only if the new Egyptian government indicates a willingness to have true peace with Israel.

The ultimate lesson here is to place no reliance on deals with  tyrants – Sadat was, indeed, a great and wise man…but he was a tyrant, and his successor was a tyrant, and only as long as the tyranny remained in power would any agreement be honored.  Tyrant gone, so is deal…better to have never made the deal, as if there hadn’t been a peace treaty Israel would be on the Suez, not worrying about attacks from the Sinai in to southern Israel.

Back to square one in the middle east…except now there is an even more virulent spirit abroad in the Muslim world.

    The second time within a month the Israeli embassy has been attacked. The second time the egyptian authorities did not stop it. Egypt legally declared war on Israel with these acts. Like tehran in 1979, since muslims did it, it is ok.

    Do nations have a right to self determination or not Mark or does the United States dictate how a nation state must act based upon America’s wishes? Israel is a nation that determines its own course. Why cannot every other nation?

      I am just recognizing reality – the peace treaty of 1979 is nullified…perhaps it can be revived; and, truth be told, if a Muslim Brotherhood government government is freely elected and then negotiates a peace treaty with Israel, that would be more valid than the peace treaty with the old Sadat/Mubarak regime. It is highly doubtful that a Muslim Brotherhood government would do that, of course…

      Why cannot every other nation?

      That’s pretty short-sighted, C.E.; by that logic, Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan should have been allowed to pursue their goals. The former Soviet Union should have been allowed to achieve world domination without anyone standing in their way. I, for one, am glad we stood in the way, and the world is better for it.

        You take me too literally. Self detrmination does not mean that you can become an aggressor state; it means you control and are responsible for your actions as a nation. America does not have to give aid to Egypt and I am sure some other nation or nations will step in to replace those funds. If Egypt does not want peace with Israel and begins to act aggrsssively [ that same applies vice versa, or at least it should but of course for America it cannot!] then they will have to be curbed by an international mandate preferably not unilateral action.

        “curbed by an international mandate” What a load of crap and double crap. By breaking inti the embassy of Israel, the egyptians have declared war. Meanwhile an international assembly of Israel Haters are assembled in Durban, South Africa to blame all the worlds ills on the Jews.

        Go eeefff yourself.

        Attacking an embassy is an act of war, Israel should take egypt and iran out by any means including nuclear and neutron.
        Hell toss one on mecca for good measure.

        Israel couldn’t take out Lebanon in 2006! and you expect them to attack the two largest nations in the Middle East?

        bible must have made you a fool! wait, to late

        A cease fire was forced upon Israel in 06. Again the muzzies were getting thier butts kicked and again they went crying to mama.

    Interestingly, the words “islam” and “muslim” never appeared in the original article. How do you know they were “Islamists?” The Egyptian population is not monolithically Muslim and neither is the population of individuals opposed to the actions of the Israeli government.
