The leader of the secular Al-Ghad (Tomorrow) opposition party in Egypt, Ayman Nour, says that the peace agreement with Israel “has ended” and must be re-negotiated.

“In practice, the Camp David agreement [of 1979, in which then-President Anwar Sadat made peace with Israel – ed.] has ended,” Dr. Nour told an interviewer on Sunday, “because it is an old agreement, and we must improve its conditions in a way that will correspond to Egypt’s interests.”

The remarks are worrisome to Israel, as they come from a leader of a non-Islamic party. The Tomorrow Party, in fact, was formed to represent a secular liberal democratic perspective, with a strong interest in human rights issues and political reform.

Nour, who sat in prison for over three years for his opposition to the now-deposed Hosni Mubarak, ran for President of Egypt in 2005. Officially, he received 7% of the vote, but is estimated to have actually received 12-13%.

“Egypt’s rights in the Camp David agreement are very modest,” Nour said. “Egypt will act with total equity towards all sides that want a just peace in the region.”

Watching closely, working to understand all I may, in this "Age of Information", even from my limited view, I can see much of what's going on ..... and I oft see it's going to impact all of us which is why I share it. My focus is to expose evil, and to serve my Lord and savior Jesus in whatever way He shows me. If one waits long enough, better writers will come along and comment; it's just that I have so little patience with the evil that lurks among us and I've wasted so much time and now, there is so little left! WELCOME!
