Posted on 11/15/2012 9:29:31 AM PST by ColdOne
CAIRO Egypt asked the United States to push Israel to stop its offensive against Hamas militants in the Gaza Strip, warning that the violence could "escalate out of control," the Foreign Ministry said Thursday.
Foreign Minister Mohammed Kamel Amr spoke with U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton late the night before, asking for "immediate U.S. intervention to stop the Israeli aggression," the ministry said in a statement. The call came after Egypt recalled its ambassador to Israel to protest the offensive.

Shove your pyramids up your smelly Obamas, Egypt.
As if any sane person listens to a country run by Islamists.
Live it, love it, and shove it.
Hamas confirms that #Egypt ministers including PM to visit Gaza tmrw. Human shields for #Hamas http://is.gd/azFnG8
I sense an Obama bow on the horizan.
I thought Billary was in Australia vacationing. No time for Benghazi hearings but plenty of time for the MuzBros?
muslime terrorists in gaza, hiding behind civilians, launch hundreds of anti-personel rockets into Israel, recently destroying an apartment and killing 3 Israelis, but the US needs to stop Israel for returning fire.
Actually, IMHO, for every rocket that lands in Israel, Israel should launch 100 rockets into gaza, destination be damned. Simple, cheap, unguided rockets. Let them detonate where they impact. The simple fact is that the gazans elected a known terrorist group, dedicated to the destruction of Israel and the murder of Jews throughout the world, so they got the “government” they wanted. Now they’ll just have to live (and die) with it.
Israel should not expect any help from this administration which has declared its love for the middle eastern cult.
Hey Arab morons, just stop firing rockets into Israel and the Israeli response will stop.
Thinking our thinking is similar. In the past, Egypt would have complained to that UN place.
Egypt is a country with a single point of failure. If I were them, I wouldn’t be too strident.
Good luck with that.
Palestinian rocket strikes telephone network in Tel Aviv directly
Will the Carrier Commanders obey an order to fire on Israeli troops?
Geez, Does That Sound Familiar!?!?!
“The Taliban is in the House”.
I support that! More human shields! Get a flotilla of libtards ready for deployment!
I thought it was on record that we had Israel’s back.
I don’t see the Egyptian Military High Command going along with Morsi’s cabal if the IB cohorts in the Egyptian Executive and Legislative branches declare war on Israel.
Egypt declares war on Israel and Egypt’s currency and government debt will collapse in value, instantly, permanently, and for at least a generation. No fuel, no bread, no medicine, for over 70% of the population, within 20 days.
The hypothetical string of events necessary to see Egypt start a war is ridiculous,...
If The IB depose the Egyptian military High Command,
and push tanks across Sinai,
and the tanks won’t make it to Gaza,
and the Aswan dam will be destroyed, removing the domestic grain production for a growing season or up to 2 years in some parts.
And the country would collapse.
What do we have in the Med right now ?
Egypt is sending its Prime Minister to Gaza Friday.
Sorry egypt, but we just elected a guy that israel can elect to ignore. You muzzies are on your own.
Purely symbolic gesture though,
Morsi has nothing to offer besides a few tractor trailers of food and blankets, a few kind words, and some random verses of the Haditha to rally the spirit of the Gazans. Not going to do any more than that.
Morsi will return to Cairo, to his mansion, have a full meal and sleep in a comfy bed the same night.
That would now include the U.S.
America is now officially a communist country because more than half the country wants handouts, government run, babies killed on demand, homosexual marriage and no God. They listen to every crappy piece of propaganda coming out of the communist democrats lips. They elected a muslim sympathizer who gets aggravated when he has to deal with Israel. Prayer - no - Miracles are needed for America and Israel. No matter how we feel about Israel, it won’t matter because Obama has the last word and we can thank ignorance and greed for that. Sorry, to rant but my head is about to explode.
“I thought Billary was in Australia vacationing”
She is at my University today I think - thank god I work nights - the ghouls are better looking!
FO Egypt, and your brotherhood too!
Israel's stance is defensive, not offensive. And who can blame them?
Go Israel. Kick some muzzie ass.
“Go Israel. Kick some muzzie ass.”
And then kick it some more.
It’s time to put a couple of carrier groups off Israel and loan Israel the command.
Over the past summer, Marsi fired all the top generals and replaced them with his own.
Can anyone link me to one call for the Arabs on the West Bank and in Gaza to show restraint from Egypt? How about Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, Libya, or the U. N...
The Arabs hurl in rocket after rocket, and the world remains mute. Israel finally has enough and responds, and all of a sudden it’s an imperitive that it shows restraint.
This was my major beef against Bush/Powell/Rice during his administration.
No nation on this planet would allow it’s citizens to be attacked constantly for years without responding.
FoxNews just had a moron broadcasting from the Middle-East live who talked of Israeli escalation.
The bias is just revolting.
All I can say to Egypt and to the MB, p!$$ off ! Maybe Egypt needs another @$$ kicking !
I do find the Egyptian call for the U. S. to get involved to cause Israel to show restraint, to be rather interesting.
It’s short of using military power. It’s short of making more threats.
This doesn’t preclude those being used, but it seems a more reasoned approach, to an unreasonable expectation.
“Nice Aswan dam you got there, Morsi. Be a shame if anything bad happened to it.”
This is all going to Israeli plans, if the Israelis were to make a sneak attack on Iranian nuclear facilities they would be attacked on all fronts, at the same time. So by taking out the Hamas leader, the Israelis knew that they would be attacked by the Palestinian, Syrian, Lebanese or Egyptian forces. In the end, The Palestinian (and anyone else) will uses themselves up and be a spent force when the main attack on the Iranian nuclear facilities take place. The Israelis can then defend themselves with fresh forces against the Iranian counter attack. Just something to think about.
I think the Answan Damn is an environmental hazard, per the eco-facists, so the IDF can do them a favor and take it out.
It would not surprise me come Friday for the Hamas militants to arrange for Egyptian Foreign Minister Mohammed Kamel Amr to die in an attack of their own making that will blamed on the Israelis. And The Obamantion will have a better reason than a video to support his Arab buddies all the way--
That's thinking small.
"Modern" Egypt would be delighted to return to that Egypt of old before the atheist Russians imposed a damned dam on them. The annual floods were just fine for the Egyptian caliphate.
Think re-establishing the Nile's ancient flow.
Think the Nile flowing west across the Sahara to the Atlantic!
After all, if a country without a single river was good enough for Mohammmmmad, it ought to be good enough for Mmmmmmmmorsi!
Hey, ask Gaza to stop, you must be Dumb and Dumber...
Apology accepted - now if you could just put her and the Kenyan in jail things would be great!
