Pressure on Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi is growing for Cairo to agree to accept refugees from Gaza as Israel continues its ground operation to rid the enclave of its barbaric ruling Hamas terrorist organization.
“We are prepared to sacrifice millions of lives to ensure that no one encroaches upon our territory,” said Egyptian Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouly, according to a WSJ report.
El-Sisi has made it clear he wants nothing to do with it, and has categorically refused to take in Gaza refugees, which he insists would dissolve the “Palestinian cause.”
And of course, that is the cudgel used by Cairo, Amman, Riyadh and other Arab states for more than half a century to beat the State of Israel into submission on various diplomatic issues – and which is used to keep the pot of Arab discontent and internal threat simmering against Israel.
