This month is the 40th anniversary of Egyptian President Anwar Sadat’s historic visit to Israel.
Arabic media are quoting Israeli news as saying that there will be an official ceremony marking the occasion…..but the Egyptian ambassador to Israel won’t be there.
The ceremony is scheduled for November 22 at the home of President Reuven Rivlin. According to the report, no Egyptian officials accepted the invitation to the event.
And this is when there is pretty close cooperation between Israel and Egypt on security matters.
People who talk about peace in the Middle East who think that peace means actual acceptance of a Jewish state are fooling themselves. A formal cold peace is a hell of a lot better than war, but it isn’t true peace until the Arabs are taught that Jews have the right to self-determination. Until there is actual, real normalization.
That’s not going to happen. Ever.
