Egypt’s al-Sisi Pressuring a Peace Initiative Between Israel and the Palestinians

el-sisi

 

Egypt, which feels it is in a position of influence after brokering a cease-fire which led to an ending of hostilities between Israel and Hamas-led Gaza, made demands based on a 2002 agreement with Arab Nations.

Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi  put forward a plan constructed by the Arab League in 2002. The plan, which has been rejected by Israel, involves a full concession of pre-1967 lands to be inhabited by Palestinians who left the territories prior to the conflict. Many countries are watching this meeting, lest they be wary of giving funds to a Hamas-dominated government. While there is not certainty this plan will be adopted, U.S Secretary of State John Kerry plans to meet with officials in Cairo, but dissuades each side from “destabilizing moves.”

The fact that Hamas holds sway over Arabs in the Gaza strip is a source of concern for many. Still Kerry praised the initiative as a framework for resolving the Israel-Palestinian conflict.
