Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak has urged Israel and the Palestinian Authority to exercise restraint in response to Thursday night's terror attack at Kedumim, in which three Israelis were killed. In an interview to an Arabic newspaper, Mubarak said that renewed negotiations were the only way to peace and stability, and promised that Egypt would step up its efforts to facilitate talks between the two countries, Israel Radio reported. Mubarak also warned against a cessation of aid to the Palestinians. The Egyptian president said that the Palestinian people should not be punished for choosing a new government in democratic elections. Mubarak reiterated his congratulations to Acting Prime Minister Ehud Olmert on Kadima's victory in the Knesset elections on Tuesday, calling it "an historic opportunity."
