Were Israel to use Egyptian methods, it would presumably face a wave of global criticism as it does nearly any time it uses force. Why the double-standard?
The Egyptian official received a warm welcome as he arrived at the rally together with Hamas leader Yahya Sinwar.
The plan is based around a simple idea: Establish an Israeli desalination plant, built on Israeli land, funded by Saudi Arabia, the Europeans and others, that provides clean water to Gaza.
According to media reporters in the Arabic press, Egypt has spoken with Hamas about the possibility of using funds from Qatar to pay the salaries of civil servants in Gaza.
An Egyptian delegation left Gaza on Wednesday and asked Israel to allow one more chance for calm to be restored to the situation, Liberman said.
Palestinian sources said they expected a truce agreement to be announced immediately after the four-day feast.
The Hamas delegation was summoned to Cairo a few days ago in the context of Egypt's ongoing effort to end the Hamas-Fatah rift and secure a long-term cease-fire between Hamas and Israel.
The Egyptians bring both motivation and clout to the Gaza crisis that threatens them no less than it threatens us.
