Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi told a delegation of American Jewish leaders in Cairo on Monday that the Middle East would be a safer place if Israel and the Palestinians came to a peace agreement, Israel Radio reported.

Sisi received a group of representatives of the American Jewish Committee, one of the most established Jewish advocacy organizations in the United States.


The Egyptian leader told the delegates that an Israeli-Palestinian peace treaty would “pull the rug out from under” the motivating causes of terrorism in the region and help dry up the pool of potential recruits.
