According to the report, Mubarak urged Netanyahu to create an atmosphere conducive to “real peace negotiations,” and said Israel must stop its military operations in the West Bank and lift the blockade imposed on Gaza.

He warned Netanyahu that Israel’s actions on the Temple Mount and its inclusion of Hebron’s Cave of the Patriarchs on the national heritage list were torpedoing peace efforts and provoking Arabs and Muslims.
