Abbas spurns Egyptian-brokered Gaza truce deal with Hamas

Israeli media claims citing Arab sources that Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas signed onto an Egyptian-brokered long-term Gaza truce deal between Hamas and Israel have no foundation, DEBKAfile’s sources report. These claims were meant to cover up the breakdown of the talks between Abbas and Egyptian president Abdel-Fatteh El-Sisi at Sharm el-Sheikh this week in a blazing row and mutual insults. After spurning the Egyptian proposal, Abbas returned to Ramallah on Wednesday and accused Egypt of “selling out the Palestinians.”

    Sisi is another paid despot ofcourse and just like the rest of them he’ll have his comeuppance one day. Can’t Egypt do better than have extremists of one sort or another in power? Perhaps they like it that way.

      Not entirely true ; The Israeli despots in power , are no different than anyone else ; and if one of the oldest hierarchical systems of rulers , going back to Pharaohs and the Harold the master builder is despotic , than they know best . In comparison the Israeli despots ,like that Abraham in his “greatness” behaved like slaves , and slave than and now still would be a slave , more advance , but still a slave.40 years in desert did not help either , since those slaves became also thieves
      Amazing isn`t it ????
