“I am happy for the Egyptians! I don't drink..but it remains to be seen if the military gives up its power to civilian control! That will be the hard part for Egypt....and it will take time to create democratic institutions there! Don't be so glib about whether or not i read newspapers or watch cable news! You have no argument..so just try..and fail..to attack me!”
“If you hate actions and policies so much...then,of course, you condemn Egypt for creating the conditions that caused Gaza to become what it is...remember...until Israel defeated Egypt... Gaza was a part of Egypt..for centuries!! Israel offered it back to Egypt when they made peace..Egypt took the Sinai and its oil wells...and left that human cesspool,Gaza, for the Israelis as a present!”

“None of the Arab Nations that interceded in Palestine in 1948 had the best interests of the Palestinians in mind. In fact I think I can state without fear of contradiction, "That through out the 20th century, no nation or body of nation took any action that had as its basis the best interest of the Palestinians in mind."
I'm sure even you could not come up with just one instance. How are the welfare payments going BTW”

“Gaza is suffering from illegal collective punishment for not kow-towing to the Israeli right wing thugs. Israeli policies toward the Palestinians are a moral cesspool which apologists like you have chosen to go swimming in”
“What will they do? Declare war and lose again? Open its borders to Gazan refugees,wreacking havoc on its border towns? Send money and food it doesn't have to Gaza? Please remember that Israel offered Gaza back to Egypt in 1973 as part of their peace agreement.......Egypt, knowing what a cesspool it had created there...REJECTED the deal!!!”
“It's bound to feel more isolated - try thinking about it.
Mubarak's gone - he's histroy.
And he was Israel's best friend in the ME.
Now - there is going to be a different peace.
There's no fail there.
Failure is the refual of some to acknowledge events in Egypt.”
“The facts you make up while on great meds don't count!”

“During the Gaza massacre, 'Israel's enforcer' prevented civilians from fleeing a
war zone by having all means of escape blocked under the 2005 agreement with Egypt. One of the many war crimes committed at that time.”
