Let me see, Israelis are getting killed on their borders with Egypt, but this guy Morsi wants the Israelis to LIMIT the number of troops?? Sorry Morsi, aint gonna happen. Control the terrorists inside of your country and those going in and out of GAZA then and only then can Israel begin to take you seriously. I can just imagine if Americans were shooting at Mexicans in Mexico and then the USA would say, please do not put Mexican police nor the Mexican Army near the border?? HELL NO!

Israeli's don't want to renegotiate their borders... they just want to steal whatever land they can lay their hands on, like the Gaza strip, and then commit genocide on any non-Israelis inside their borders while being protected by the U.S.

Actually, there are already limits set by the agreement. The Egyptian side would like to change those limits so as to allow them (and the Israelis) to station higher numbers of troops at the borders. They state they would be able to control border movements more easily if they were less restricted as to how many tropps they can use. Perhaps you disagree with this as well?

The Israelis generally kill far more people at the border than they lose. Most non Israeli casualties never get reported however.

Yes. The Sinai has been a demilitarized zone since the 70s. That worked well, as long as the Egyptian government was basically secular and respected Israel`s right to exist.

That of course has changed totally with the Araba Shariah "spring" and the islamist Muslim Brotherhood in power in Egypt. Morsi wants to station Egyptian troops next to Israels border, plus open the door for islamist terrorist to march into Sinai.

That Netanyahu is against that is only logical.

That is a misleading comparison. You are comparing Israel´s 6 million people with Egypt´s 70 million. Isreal could never match an Egyptian troop deployment man for man. That is what the demilitarized Sinai was so crucially important for Israel`s safety for all these years.

The news Muslim Brotherhood government in Egypt, which the Obama administration supported so enthusiastically, now wants to throw that out of the window and threaten Israel again.

" The Israelis generally kill far more people at the border than they lose. "

That is another misleading comparison. The IDF responds to terrorist attacks (like the rocket bombardments from Gaza). By definition, when a military responds, they have more firepower. But the attacks are always initiatate from the outside.

I hope this guy Morsi is not stupid enough to try and have another war with Israel, the last time I checked the History Channel, Egypt always got beaten. Is this gods will?? Heck! I do not even believe in only one god! But time for everyone to relax, make sure no crazy Al Qaeda, Taliban etc..want to use Egypt as their next tests grounds, like Somalia, etc..

Actually this is not a comparison. The Egyptian side has simply asked to renegoitiate the limits. Not to deploy massively disproportionate numbers of troops.

The killing of unarmed children at Israeli borders has been well documented.

It is about time Egypt broke this agreement. The egyptians have to sell oil to israel for around $3.00 us dollars a barrel also they have to sell natural gas at the 1970 rate. Right now Israel wants to go to war with another Muslim country, most muslims will back Iran..Israels does not care as they will use Nuclear weapons agenest Iran and all other Muslim countries. I met the Israel Engineers in America when they tested there Bomb many years ago. So lots of luck here we go to a NUCLEAR WAR.
